Contact: Ari Harris


Grace Pawluszka, a Central Michigan University senior from Warren, Michigan, has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Grant to teach English in the Slovak Republic.

Pawluszka, a music education major with a minor in business administration, worked with CMU's National Scholarship Program and faculty mentors from the School of Music to complete her application.

Each year, fewer than 2,000 U.S. students, artists and young professionals receive Fulbright grants to study, conduct research and teach English abroad. Fulbright student programs are offered in more than 140 countries around the world. Students are selected based on their academic merit, leadership and cultural competency.

Pawluszka plans to pursue a career as either a music educator or a business professional in the music industry, roles which require significant collaboration with people from diverse backgrounds.

"This international teaching experience will not only help me develop my teaching skills in a unique setting, but also my ability to collaborate with others," she said. "My Fulbright experience will be instrumental in expanding the skills I'll use in my future career."
