Rebecca Voth, a senior University Scholar student studying political science, international studies, philosophy, and Spanish, has been selected to receive a prestigious Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) to Mexico. In addition to teaching English in Mexico, Voth will be exploring the issue of immigration patterns from and through the two countries. As the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, the Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Fulbright ETAs are placed in classrooms abroad to provide assistance to local English teachers while also serving as cultural ambassadors for the United States.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to represent the United States as a cultural ambassador and look forward to experiencing the nation I have learned to love from afar. I am grateful for the assistance of Baylor’s SPARK office, as well as the support and incredible education I have received from Baylor. The Honors College in particular has been formational in my education and I am thrilled to get to take all that I have learned to Mexico. I hope to influence my students there with the same care and excellence I received at Baylor.” –Rebecca Voth
