Claire Frey
  • Fulbright Scholarship 2019
    A year abroad for U.S. citizens engaged in cultural exchange, study, research, or teaching English in one of over 140 Fulbright-eligible countries.


Claire demonstrates the inquisitiveness, cultural sensitivity, and foundational teaching experiences necessary for a Fulbright English teaching assistant position in Brazil.  She has held both professional and personal positions of authority, highlighting her ability to foster trust and exercise appropriate judgment. Her outreach to local Brazilian communities also reflects the curiosity and cultural sensitivity critical for the position. She hopes to volunteer with urban farming and gardening projects in local communities and schools, fostering empowerment and community engagement through self-sustainability. Claire is also interested in expanding nutritional education in the U.S. through similar programs. When she returns home, Claire intends to pursue a master’s degree in education in order to teach English literature in urban areas and work in educational policy to increase bilingual and nutritional education in the U.S.
