Sarah Watson ’11 Receives Fulbright to Luxembourg

Posted September 29th, 2011 at 1:48 pm.

Sarah Watson ’11 is the latest Bryn Mawr College recipient of the Fulbright Scholarship. Watson is spending the year in Luxembourg, teaching English and studying. She is the seventh Bryn Mawr graduate this year to receive the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship, joining the ranks of about 1,600 recipients this year selected from the nation’s top achievers.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Watson received her scholarship based on her academic achievement and commitment to those ideals.

Watson, who double majored in French and Growth and Structure of Cities, spent her junior semester abroad in Paris. She also completed a self-designed research project funded by a Hanna Holborn Gray Research Grant in the summer of 2010.

Students interested in applying for a Fulbright are encouraged to contact the Fellowships Adviser early in the summer before the senior year, with a brief write-up of possible project ideas. Those interested in receiving feedback on their ideas should submit a draft of their application (i.e., resume + statement of proposed study + narrative autobiography) to fellowships@brynmawr.edu.
