Six Scholars Earn Fulbright Opportunities

Continuing the Colleges' tradition of being among the nation's top producers of Fulbright scholars, six Hobart and William Smith graduates are working abroad as part of the U.S. government's flagship international educational exchange program.

Alexandra "Sasha" Carey '18, MAT '19, who earned her degree in sociology and education, is serving in Bulgaria; Loretta Hauslauer '19, a sociolinguistics major, is serving in Malaysia; Cynthia Kellett '19, who earned her degree in international relations, is serving in Germany; Meredith Kellogg '19, a comparative literature and Greek major, is serving in the Czech Republic; Miranda Smith '18, MAT '19, a sociology major, is serving in Malaysia; and Brandi Taylor '19, MAT '20, an English and Africana studies major, will begin serving in Kenya in January.

All of the graduates will be English teaching assistants in their respective countries.

Created in 1949, the Fulbright Program is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and numerous nations around the world. Participants, chosen for their academic merit and leadership qualities, are given the opportunity to study, live, teach and conduct research abroad for one year in order to exchange ideas and seek solutions to shared global concerns.
