Two PSIA majors will Fulbright Awards
In January 2020, eleven UNG students and alumni were selected as semifinalists for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. We are happy to announce that two our majors received awards!
Madelyn Beacham, a fall 2019 graduate in International Affairs, was selected for Fulbright graduate degree. She plans to pursue a Master’s program in International Relations while doing research in Turkey on education strategies for young adult refugees. Her grant will cover her living expenses plus her tuition at a Turkish university. She is the first UNG student to receive a Fulbright graduate degree grant.
Benny Purk, a fall 2018 graduate in International Affairs, was selected for a German English Teaching Assistantship.
Congratulations to Madelyn and Benny!
