PROFESSOR AWARDED FULBRIGHT TO TEACH IN SWAZILAND

CHARLESTON, S.C., Aug. 29.--Citadel professor Maj. Donald Sparks, Ph.D., has been awarded a Fulbright grant to lecture in Swaziland for the 1996- 97 school year.

     Dr. Sparks, an associate professor of business administration, will teach international economics and development economics to senior classes at the University of Swaziland.

     The Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Awards were established by former Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946 to increase understanding between nations by sharing valuable educational resources.

     A resident of Sullivan's Island, Dr. Sparks has previously lectured to academic, government, and business circles in Swaziland in an effort to help the developing nation achieve economic independence from neighboring South Africa. Before coming to The Citadel in 1986, Sparks held the post of Regional Economist for Africa in the U.S. Department of State. He has also served as a consultant to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization and the United Nations Council for Namibia.

     Dr. Sparks received his bachelor's degree from George Washington University, and his master's and doctoral degrees from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London.
