Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Sujaya Rao's reflects on her time in Ecuador.  "Although I expected my Fulbright experience to be rewarding, I had not envisioned that it would be transformative on so many levels!

Engineers without Borders group in Kenya and Tanzania

As a senior in civil engineering, Jordan Machtelinckx has long enjoyed the technical aspects of engineering which spur him to think; but, it’s the combination of applying engineering concepts to the social and cultural environment that really get him going.

Helen Walters has long been drawn to multifaceted opportunities. Evidence of this can be seen with her choice of studies, the BioResource Research major, which is designed to lead to a career in management, research or outreach. Study abroad, another inherently multifaceted opportunity had been one of her ambitions since high school.

Inspired by her mother’s tales of studying abroad in France and more recently, a family vacation in Greece, Sarah Vojnovich decided it was time to invest in her own life-transforming study abroad experience.
