Elizabeth Hall, a senior Spanish and Education major at William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., has been named a 2007 Fulbright Scholar. She is a resident of Overland Park, Kan.

Hall plans to spend eight months teaching and studying in Uruguay funded by the Fulbright’s English Teaching Assistantship award. She will be assisting with English classes in a public school as well as working with Uruguayan teachers who are studying to become English teachers. Additionally, she will do volunteer work at Defensa de Los Ninos International, a children’s rights organization in Montevideo.

“It is overwhelming, exciting and such an honor to be named a Fulbright Scholar,” Hall said. “The opportunity to live, study and teach abroad has been a dream of mine since I finished my study-abroad year in Salamanca, Spain. What a privilege it will be to represent my country and my college in Uruguay.”

The Fulbright Scholarship program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and 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.
The Fulbright program was established in 1946 by the U.S. Congress to “enable the government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.”

Approximately 6,000 Fulbright grants were awarded in 2006, at a cost of more than $235 million, to U.S. students, teachers, professionals and scholars to study, teach, lecture and conduct research in more than 150 countries, and to their foreign counterparts to engage in similar activities in the United States. The scholarship program receives its primary funding through an annual appropriation from Congress to the Department of State. Participating governments and host institutions in foreign countries, and in the United States, also contribute financially through cost-sharing and indirect support such as salary supplements, tuition waivers and university housing.
