Political science professor awarded Fulbright
Citadel Political Science Professor DuBose Kapeluck is one of 1,100 faculty from across the United States awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to spend the 2012-2013 academic year teaching abroad. Kapeluck will teach courses in American politics to Slovenian graduate students at the University of Ljubljana.
Fulbright grants are awarded annually by the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. Ryan Adams, a 2011 Citadel graduate, was also awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and will serve as an English teaching assistant in Germany.
“Two Fulbrights, one to a cadet graduate and the other to a professor, in one year—this is indeed a coup for The Citadel,” said Brig. Gen. Sam Hines, provost and dean of the college. “The Fulbright award is very prestigious and reflects The Citadel’s emphasis on creating a more global education.”
Kapeluck is a native South Carolinian. He grew up in Columbia and graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in history. After receiving a master’s degree in political science from North Carolina State University, he earned his Ph.D. in American politics from Louisiana State University. He is the co-director for The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics and the co-editor of two books on Southern politics as well as two issues of the American Review of Politics.
Kapeluck’s wife and four children, ranging in age from 6 to 14, will spend the year with him in Slovenia.
