2015 Fulbright Finalist
Huge congratulations to Fulbright finalist Lizeth Garcia. A 2013 graduate of the Politics, Philosophy and Economics program, Lizeth is hoping to teach English in Mexico through the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program in 2015-16. After being chosen as a finalist by a domestic screening committee, her application has now been passed to the host country for final selection. She will hear in April or May whether she will receive the award.
Lizeth is no stranger to teaching; she has gained valuable tutoring experience working with a local community organization that supports the education of Latino children. Since graduating from UW Tacoma, she’s worked as a legislative aide at King County Council. Fingers crossed for her application!
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards funding for one academic year of self-designed study, research, creative projects, or teaching English in one of over 140 countries around the world. Eligible applicants are U.S. Citizens who will have a bachelor's degree before the start of the grant, but not yet a PhD.
