2022 Recipient of Finland: Roth‐Thomson Award Announced

A generous gift from Ann O. Thomson provides supplementary project support for American Fulbrighters in Finland every year, in cooperation with the Fulbright Finland Foundation. For 2022, the award was presented to Kathlyn Elliott.

Kathlyn is researching the important role of teachers in preventing extremist ideology in Finnish schools. With the Roth-Thomson Award, she will travel to three additional cities for classroom observation. Upon returning to the United States, she plans to complete her doctoral program with the research from Finland being a key piece of her dissertation. Longer term, she hopes to work for the United States government to combat violent extremism.
