Alumna named Fulbright Student English Teaching Assistant
Date: January 10, 2014
Grand Valley alumna Rylee Mielecki, ‘12, of Grand Rapids has been awarded a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a U.S. student teaching assistantship in Brazil. Mielecki graduated with a degree in anthropology.
Mielecki was one of 120 students selected nationally as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant to Brazil. She will teach English in Brazil from March through November as part of a comprehensive plan to increase the quality and quantity of English teaching in Brazil before the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. The effort will assign at least two Fulbright English Teaching Assistants to the English language training center at each of the 59 federal universities throughout the country.
Mielecki and other English Teaching Assistants will spend about 25 hours per week developing and leading language learning activities to promote U.S. culture through cultural and social programs, with the assistance of faculty.
Graduating seniors and alumni who are interested in applying for the U.S. Student Fulbright Program to serve as an English Teaching Assistant or to conduct study/research should contact Amanda Cuevas, director of the Frederik Meijer Office of Fellowships at email@example.com, (616) 331-2699, or by visiting 230 Mary Idema Pew Library. Applications for the 2015-16 academic year open May 1. The deadline is September 26.
