Fulbright Lecturing Grant
Dr. Edward Kovach, professor of computer science at Franciscan University of Steubenville and a 1972 graduate of Poland Seminary High School, is the recipient of a Fulbright Lecturing Grant, which will send him to teach at Peter Pazmany Catholic University in Budapest, Hungry, for the 2005-06 academic year.
The Fulbright program was established by the late U.S. Sen. William Fulbright to promote mutual understanding between the United States and other countries after World War II.
Kovach will lend his expertise in teaching courses in computer science, mathematics and complexity theory. He is the third Franciscan University professor to receive a Fulbright Award.
