ETAs may also pursue individual study/research plans in addition to their teaching responsibilities.
McCardle has been a resident advisor at Hamilton since the 2012 academic year. During the summer of 2013 she was a development intern at the Chinese-American Planning Council in Manhattan. At Hamilton she is a greenhouse assistant in the college’s Science Center greenhouse.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.
