Bengü Cilalı, a PhD candidate in the Graduate School of Education, has been awarded a Fulbright grant and invited to the Motivate Lab at the University of Virginia as a visiting fellow.

The Fulbright program offers competitive, merit-based fellowships for promising students, researchers and academics to study, teach or conduct research in the US, as well as providing similar opportunities for US-based Fulbright fellows to study or teach abroad.

Bengü, who is pursuing her dissertation research under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Aikaterini Michou, aims to make a significant contribution to the literature on teacher mindset and motivation by collaborating with Assoc. Prof. Chris Hulleman and his research team at the University of Virginia.
