TU senior Trey Johnston has been selected to receive a Fulbright award to teach abroad in Portugal.
University of Tulsa senior student and Tulsa native Trey Johnston has been selected to receive a Fulbright award to teach abroad in Portugal.
Johnston, a triple major in Spanish, women’s and gender studies, and linguistics, will graduate this spring from the Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences. This fall, the Fulbright award will support his efforts to serve as an English teaching assistant at a Portuguese university and advise students there about studying in the United States.
Following his time in Portugal, Johnston will pursue a master’s degree in either applied linguistics at Boston University or women’s studies at George Washington University.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed research projects or English teaching assistantships where students meet, work, live and learn from the people of their host countries. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field and home.
