Honors Students receive Fulbright Awards
Three Honors students, Zainab Abdali, Luke Chadwick & Chizobam Nwagwu, are among the 2018/19 Fulbright recipients from Syracuse University.
Zainab Abdali has worked with Syracuse’s refugee community during her four years at Syracuse. Her experience tutoring and talking to Somali high school students who grew up in refugee camps in Kenya motivated her to apply for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program English Teaching Assistantship in Kenya.
Abdali, a senior majoring in English and textual studies and in mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program, is one of several Syracuse University students and alumni that Fulbright has awarded the opportunity to explore their research and teaching interests around the world for the 2018-19 academic year. Six students and three alumnae were selected to participate in the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program. Two students have received study/research grants. The research grants and ETAs are awarded through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program from the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
