Hostos faculty members don’t only receive accolades—they play a vital role in the process of examining and judging candidates for various prestigious awards. Hostos Professor Humberto Ballesteros is a case in point.
Ballesteros, an assistant professor of Modern Languages in the Humanities Department, was recently commended for his service to the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB) and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) as a national Screening Committee member.
Assistant Professor Ballestros said, "I am thankful to Fulbright for the opportunity to serve in the National Screening Committee. It was a fascinating experience. I learned a lot and I am looking forward to continue to serve in the future,”
Ballesteros was applauded for his extensive efforts in reviewing applications as a critical component to the quality and sustainability of Fulbright programs. He was also cited for his continued advocacy for and support of the FFSB.
