Graduate Student Wins Fulbright

Ashley Weselak, who graduated with her master’s degree in English education in May, while winning the President’s Medal for Outstanding Graduate Student and SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence, has been named a recipient
of a Fulbright U.S. Student Program Grant. She will teach English as a second language in Rwanda, starting in the fall. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government.

After traveling to Rwanda with the Anne Frank Project in January 2015, Weselak was so inspired by the people and the history of the country, she wanted to find a way to return as a teacher.
