Esters Awarded Fulbright Grant in Australia
Levon Esters will be traveling across Australia on a Fulbright grant he was awarded in May
Esters will be stationed out of the Univeristy of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba, Queensland on the east coast of Australia. Working with the country's Regional Universities Network (RUN), Esters plans to conduct a study in regional, rural, and remote (RRR) Australian communities looking at the intersection of agricultural career education and the role it plays in enhancing the postsecondary education and career prospects of youth and adults in the RRR areas.
"I will be interviewing students and educators across different grade levels, parents, business owners, school administrators and university professionals," Esters said. "I want to be fully immersed in these communities."
