Congratulations ESS Class of 2016! Watch a slideshow of our graduates here.
If you're looking for a great volunteer opportunity this fall: Nancy McAdams, former ESS associate director, is looking for a co-leader for her 4th grade Girl Scout Group. The girls are students at Our Lady of Hungary School, just south of downtown. They are of Mexican-American heritage and are looking forward to joining Girl Scouts for the first time. Commitment is twice/month, Thursdays, 3:00-4:00 pm. Email Nancy McAdams for more information.
Interested in teaching English overseas and improving your foreign language skills after you graduate? Applications are still open for the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship Program (ETA), a fully-funded opportunity for recent graduates to teach and act as cultural ambassadors abroad. This grant has no minimum GPA requirement, and students from all majors are encouraged to apply. If you are interested, submit your pre-application as soon as possible, so that we can get you started in the advising process. (It’s not too late to apply for other Fellowships, like the Rhodes (for study in the UK) or the Luce (to spend a year working in Asia).
