2012 UCSC Linguistics graduate Kelsey Kraus will spend the next year living and working in Germany as the recipient of a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship.
Kraus begins teaching today at the Hermann-Ehlers-Gymnasium in Berlin. Her job this year will be to provide assistance for teachers of English to non-native English-speakers.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, with the aim of increasing mutual understanding between the people of the United States and those of other countries.
Chosen on the basis of academic merit and leadership potential, Fulbright scholars like Kraus are employed each year to help teach English language courses while serving as ambassadors for U.S. culture.
