Daniel Little, a senior at Hamilton College, has been awarded a Fulbright Teaching Assistantship to Germany. He received a placement to a secondary school in Giessen, a university city in the state of Hessen.

The purpose of the Fulbright Program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge and skills. The program is designed to give recent college graduates opportunities for personal development and international experience.

It offers invaluable opportunities to meet and work with people of the host country, sharing daily life as well as professional and creative insights. The program promotes cross-cultural interaction and mutual understanding on a person-to-person basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity and intellectual freedom.

Little, a candidate for May graduation from Hamilton, is a dual major in economics and German. He spent the fall 1998 semester studying at the University of Leipzig where he received the D.A.A.D. Grant (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst). He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gene E. Little of Croydon Drive, N.W. in Canton, Ohio and is a graduate of Theodore Roosevelt High School.

Hamilton College is a highly selective residential college offering a rigorous liberal arts curriculum. Students are challenged to think, write and speak critically, creatively and analytically, so that upon graduation, they may distinguish themselves in both their professions and their communities.
