The Fulbright-Cottrell Award is based on the prestigious Cottrell Award of the U.S. Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA). It rewards outstanding teacher-scholars who are recognized by their scientific communities on both sides of the Atlantic for the quality and innovation of their research programs and their academic leadership skills. This year's awards were presented at the Fulbright Commission's 63rd Berlin Seminar on March 27, 2017 to the biochemist Dr. Ute Hellmich from Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz and the physicist Dr. Steffen Schumann from Georg-August-University Göttingen.
