July 17, 2014

Assistant Professor of Law Erin F. Delaney has been awarded a 2014–2015 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant. Delaney will hold the Fulbright Canada Visiting Research Chair in the Theory and Practice of Constitutionalism and Federalism at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, during the fall 2014 term.

Delaney’s project while at McGill, entitled “Safeguarding Federalism: American Federalism in Comparative Perspective,” will build on her prior research in judicial federalism and comparative constitutional law.

Earlier this year, Delaney was awarded a MacCormick Visiting Fellowship at the Edinburgh Law School in Edinburgh, Scotland. She holds a courtesy appointment in political science at the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences.

Delaney is one of approximately 1,100 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program in 2014–2015. Since its establishment in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Program has given more than 318,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists, scientists, and other professionals the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, a division of the Institute of International Education.

Fulbright Canada is supported by the Canadian Government, through Foreign Affairs Trade and Development Canada, by the United States Government, through the Department of State, and by a diverse group of corporate sponsors, charitable trusts, and university partners. It is governed by an independent Board of Directors and is headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario.
