. – Florida A&M University (FAMU) alumna Angelique S.C. Grant, Ph.D., executive director of major gifts for the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, has been selected for a Fulbright award from the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

“I thought about the Fulbright program for years and now I have the opportunity to participate,” said Grant. “It is a distinguished honor to be selected for such a prestigious program.”
Grant, who was one of the 25 academicians selected from the United States, is scheduled to travel to Berlin, and other cities in Germany, and provide feedback on their respective individualized areas of expertise.
Grant, who earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from FAMU in 1992, has more than 15 years of institutional advancement experience as it relates to higher education including fundraising, alumni relations, community relations, marketing and communications.
“Academia is a journey,” said Grant. “FAMU has this unique way of rapidly preparing students for real world experiences – both in and outside of the classroom. I thoroughly enjoyed my FAMU experience. I can proudly say that FAMU graduates are tenacious and possess strong communication and leadership skills.”
