Madison Carrington, ’24, Morris, has advanced to the semifinalist stage for a Fulbright grant. 

Fulbright invites students to apply for two types of awards: Open Study/Research Awards or English Teaching Assistant Awards. Carrington, who is double majoring in Elementary Education and Spanish, has applied to the English Teaching Assistant program to teach in Colombia.  

The English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Programs place Fulbrighters in classrooms abroad to provide assistance to the local English teachers. ETAs help teach English language while serving as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. The age and academic level of the students varies by country, ranging from kindergarten to university level. Applicants for ETA Programs can apply to only one country. 

Final awards will be announced later this spring.
