Fulbright Association Board Treasurer Kim Eger was recently inducted into the Martin Luther King, Jr. Collegium of Scholars. The induction ceremony took place in the Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia.
Nancy Neill, president of the Fulbright Association’s Board of Directors, shared: “It was moving to be in a room with so many people focused on peace. Dean Carter read the charge to the inductees and one of the lines that struck me was this one: ‘I charge you to use your time, talent, tender and technology to help usher in an age of peace and nonviolence…’ — The Fulbright Association’s Pathway projects, under Kim’s leadership, are focused on exactly that.”
Collegium of Scholars selection is based on current members’ recommendations and an exhibition of King’s ethical traditions of non-violence through the clergy, scholars, and laity.
Kim Eger went on his Fulbright to the University of Cologne in 1992, where he studied political science and economics. After his Fulbright, he went on to earn an M.A. in International Relations from the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), studying in Bologna, Italy, and Washington, D.C.
