I’m also very excited to work with students who already have a knack for language in their mind.”

Meghan Jusczak received an English Teaching Assistantship in Romania. After graduating from UD in 2017 with an Honors diploma in English and Women & Gender Studies, Jusczak has become a journalist and now works with City Year, an AmeriCorps software, in Philadelphia.

I’m interested in talking with humans, gaining more knowledge from the local people, and using my role as an interloper to usher in special thoughts.”

Julianna Ly

Julianna Ly, a graduate student in the Winterthur/UD Program in Art Conservation, will call the Netherlands home for an 11-month internship jointly provided with the aid of the University of Amsterdam and the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis. One Fulbright/American Friends of the Mauritshuis Award is offered each 12 months. “I’m surely interested in Dutch Golden Age artwork. That’s what the Mauritshuis is thought for,” Ly said. “Being there isn’t always simplest going to permit me to be surrounded via this artwork. However, I’ll also be able to look at and deal with one myself closely. We regularly seek advice from the three-legged stool of art records, hand abilities, and chemistry in conservation. I’ll be coming near this portrayal from all three views.”

Ly will examine along with college students in a graduate program at the University of Amsterdam. “I’m certainly excited to immerse myself in Dutch culture and, especially, to collaborate with my global colleagues,” she stated. “We have a lot that we can research each different.”
