Three of five Fulbright Scholars announced by Boise State for the 2019-20 academic year are College of Education current students or alumni. Olivia Bates, an elementary education and literacy major, Daniel Hopkins (History and Social Sciences Secondary Education,’19), and Willow True, an elementary education and TESOL major, joined a record-breaking group of Boise State Fulbright Scholars this year as Boise State was awarded the most Fulbright grantees among Idaho universities for 2019-20.

Each College of Education Fulbright scholar will begin their overseas English Teaching Assistant grant in January 2021. Bates will be traveling to teach and study in rural Indonesia, Hopkins and True will both teach and study in the Netherlands.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is a competitive grant award that provides funding for study and research in English Teaching Assistant Programs overseas. The program promotes cultural exchange and immersion as Fulbright grantees work, live and and share daily experiences with the people and culture of their host countries.
