Dr John Bedker, a former LOB PhD student at Henley Business School, has been awarded a Fulbright scholarship in Belarus.
John, who completed his PhD in 2016, was selected for the scholarship after a peer review process organised by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES).

It acts as an educational exchange programme for academics and other professionals for lecturing and/or research in any discipline, with benefits of the scholarship including a monthly stipend, visa sponsorship and access to a global alumni network of over 300,000 academically and professional accomplished members.
Speaking after his award, John said, “Evelyn’s letter of recommendation was greatly appreciated and clearly impactful. My sincere thanks.”
