Meredith Nuber ’14 Awarded Fulbright ETA to Germany
Meredith Nuber ’14 has been awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) to Germany, where she will teach English. A German studies and world politics major at Hamilton, she studied at Ludwig Maximilians University in Germany in 2013, and at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, in 2012.
Nuber has volunteered on a refugee community services project with Heartland Human Care Services in Chicago, and on a Habitat for Humanity project. She played volleyball at Hamilton from 2010 to 2012.
She is the daughter of Gordon and Janice Nuber of Glenview, Ill., and a graduate of Friends School.
The Fulbright ETA Program, an element of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, places U.S. students as English teaching assistants in schools or universities overseas, thus improving foreign students’ English language abilities and knowledge of the United States while increasing their own language skills and knowledge of the host country. ETAs may also pursue individual study/research plans in addition to their teaching responsibilities.
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.
After returning to the U.S., Nuber would like to work as a German language teacher for a non-profit or non-governmental organization.
