Top Icelandic students to the U.S.

I attended a reception honoring eight Icelandic students who earned Fulbright, Cobb, and Boas grants to pursue studies in the United States at some of our top universities. These outstanding Icelandic students will be pursuing advanced degrees in engineering, law, music composition, the Manhattan School of Music, the University of Miami, and the University of Minnesota. Educational exchanges such as those funded by the Fulbright program, Ambassador Cobb, and the Franz Boas Foundation deserve to be commended for their accomplishments in promoting understanding between Iceland and the United States.
