Natalie Wolf moved to full grant status for U.S. Fulbright Student Program to Peru
Natalie Wolf, senior in English and Spanish, Tonganoxie, has been moved from an alternate to full grant status for the U.S. Fulbright Student Program. She will teach English as a second language in Peru and host a film series that would offer insight into American culture.
The Fulbright programs create international educational exchange opportunities to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Fulbright grant recipients receive round-trip transportation, tuition when applicable, and a monthly living stipend for one academic year abroad.
"My current plans are to attend graduate school in linguistics and pursue a career as an educator," Wolf said. "A Fulbright English teaching assistant position will help me improve my knowledge of the structure of both English and Spanish and gain teaching experience."
As an undergraduate researcher with Mary Kohn, associate professor of linguistics, Wolf is analyzing interviews related to Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. She is the president of Spanish Club, vice president of Sigma Delta Pi, vice president of Sigma Tau Delta, secretary of International Buddies and a member of Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Beta Kappa and the University Honors Program. A 2016 graduate of Tonganoxie High School, she is the daughter of Randal and Michelle Wolf, Lenexa.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Grant application for the next round of the competition is already open. Students interested in spending an academic year abroad beginning in fall 2021 should contact Jim Hohenbary, director of the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The campus deadline is Aug. 24.
