Texas Tech History Professor Receives Fulbright Scholar Award, Will Teach Course in Vietnam

A Texas Tech history professor has received a prestigious award, and will teach a course in a place he visited with many other servicemen years ago.

Ron Milam has received a Core Fulbright Scholar Award, and will travel to Vietnam to teach a course at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities.  Milam will be teaching a course titled “America’s Historical Role in International Relations” in the Ho Chi Minh City University in the spring of 2012.

Dr. Milam discussed the award and the course, saying “To be able to return to the country that I fought against many years ago and to contribute to their educational system will be very rewarding.”

Milam teaches classes on U.S. history, the Vietnam War, and graduate and undergraduate courses in military history. He also authored Not a Gentleman’s War: An Inside View of Junior Officers in the Vietnam War.

The Fulbright program, founded by U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946, sends 800 American professionals abroad to lecture and conduct research in a wide variety of academic fields.
