The University of Texas at Arlington is proud to announce that Dr. Maria Trache, a renowned linguist and professor of English, has been named a Fulbright U.S. Scholar. This prestigious award recognizes Dr. Trache’s outstanding academic achievements and her commitment to fostering international understanding and collaboration.

As a Fulbright U.S. Scholar, Dr. Trache will have the opportunity to conduct research and teach at a university abroad, further solidifying UTA’s reputation as a hub for global engagement and academic excellence. Her research focuses on language acquisition, bilingualism, and language contact, and she has published numerous articles and book chapters on these topics.

Dr. Trache’s Fulbright project, titled “Language Contact and Language Change in the U.S.-Mexico Border Region,” aims to investigate the linguistic and cultural dynamics of the border region, where Spanish and English are in constant contact. Her research will provide valuable insights into the complex relationships between language, culture, and identity, and will have significant implications for language teaching, language policy, and community engagement.

The Fulbright Program, established in 1946, is a flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. It provides opportunities for scholars, students, and professionals to conduct research, teach, and study abroad, promoting mutual understanding and cooperation between the United States and other countries.

Dr. Trache’s Fulbright award is a testament to her dedication to advancing knowledge and promoting cross-cultural understanding. Her research will not only enrich our understanding of language and culture but also foster greater collaboration between UTA and international academic institutions.

“We are thrilled to see Dr. Trache receive this prestigious award,” said Dr. Elizabeth G. Canning, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts. “Her research will have a significant impact on our understanding of language and culture, and we are proud to have her represent UTA on the global stage.”

Dr. Trache’s Fulbright experience will undoubtedly enrich her teaching and research at UTA, and we look forward to the many opportunities for collaboration and knowledge-sharing that this award will bring. Congratulations to Dr. Maria Trache on this well-deserved recognition!
