Lomax receives Fulbright Specialist Grant

Richard Lomax, professor and associate dean of research and administration in the College of Education and Human Ecology, is the recipient of a prestigious Fulbright Specialist Grant. Lomax will be affiliated with the University of Tartu in Estonia, where he will be assisting two research teams on two separate projects with his expertise on structural equation modeling this May.

The first project is a multinational study of the impact of motivation and attitudinal variables on educational attainment. The second project considers the relationship between children’s well-being and health behavior in a longitudinal design of eight European countries. While in Estonia, he will also help design an advanced graduate course in social sciences and psychology on structural equation modeling.

This will be Lomax’s third Fulbright Grant to Estonia. He received a traditional Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant to teach at Tallinn Pedagogical University in 2003-2004 and a Senior Specialist Fulbright to teach at Tallinn University in 2005.
