Christian Bush has earned a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant grant to teach students in Macau.

The U.S. Student Fulbright Program, a federally sponsored international, educational and cultural exchange, recognizes academic merit and leadership potential. The program promotes mutual understanding between U.S. residents and people in more than 155 countries worldwide. Fulbrights are among the most prestigious awards in higher education.

I am so excited to spend next year teaching English in Macau through the Fulbright program. I look forward to taking my academic and professional experiences at the University of Louisville and using them to create a great learning environment and cultural exchange.
