For the past six years, the Edward Guiliano Global Fellowship Program has provided funds for more than 50 Stony Brook University students to pursue their research around the globe.

PhD alumnus Edward Guiliano ’78 and his wife, Mireille, brought the Edward Guiliano Global Fellowship Program to Stony Brook University in 2018, after introducing the fellowship program during his tenure as president at New York Institute of Technology and then expanding it to include his undergraduate alma mater, Brown University, and most recently nationwide through the Modern Language Association.

“We wanted to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the possibilities to pursue their own ideas,” Guiliano said. “Our hope is that these students can step out of their comfort zones and learn from the full experience — from the grand proposal to their trip and explaining their work. It is especially important to us that the projects are self-directed so that the students are pursuing their original ideas and inspirations, not their professor’s, and that they are hands-on in all phases of the process.”

In SB Matters, Christine McGrath speaks with three of the fellows about their experience and how the fellowship impacted their time at Stony Brook, and their careers. Guiliano also discussed why he created the program, how it’s grown and his hope for the future.
