Hannah Subotnick, MFA '20, receives Fulbright Award

Twenty-eight Stanford seniors, graduate students, and alumni have been awarded grants to pursue special projects abroad next year with funding from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is designed to build lasting connections between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. It awards grants annually to more than 1,900 diverse U.S. students, artists, and early career professionals who will pursue special projects in more than 140 countries.

The 2024 Fulbright recipients affiliated with Stanford will travel to 15 countries, including Colombia, Estonia, Germany, New Zealand, Peru, Spain, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe, where they will carry out individually designed research projects, pursue graduate study programs, or take part in English Teaching Assistant (ETA) programs during the 2024-25 academic year.

Hannah Subotnick (MFA Art Practice ’20) will travel to the Netherlands to make a photographic portrait of philosopher Baruch Spinoza in absentia by tracing his presence through the places he lived. She will explore how Spinoza’s occupational practice of lens grinding relates metaphorically and poetically to his philosophy.
