Jodie Stewart, a candidate for May graduation from Hamilton College, has been awarded a Fulbright Teaching Assistantship to South Korea. She will teach conversational English to middle and high school students.
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.
Stewart is a world politics major at Hamilton. A Dean's List student, she studied at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London during the fall 1999 semester. At Hamilton she was head delegate to the Model European Union, is a member of the International Relations Group, the Hamilton College Young Democrats and is a peer tutor. Stewart, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Stewart of Hamlin, is a graduate of Brockport 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.
