Lauren Kuehn ’13, of Northport, N.Y., has received a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to Germany, where she will teach English to German high school students during the 2013-14 academic year.

The political science and German double major will attend Notre Dame Law School and study international law and policy. “My dream is to go on to work at the State Department to further relations between the United States and Germany,” she said.

At Holy Cross, Kuehn was involved in the College Choir, Chamber Choir, Schola Cantorum, Moot Court, and Relationship Peer Educators, and served as co-president of the German Club.

Each year approximately 1,700 U.S. college students are awarded grants through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. The Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship program in international educational exchange, awards grants to U.S. citizens and nationals of other countries for a variety of educational activities, primarily university lecturing, advanced research, graduate study and teaching in elementary and secondary schools. Since the program’s inception in 1946, more than 300,000 participants — selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential — have had the opportunity to observe each other’s political, economic and cultural institutions. The program operates in more than 155 countries worldwide.
