Kristina Domaney ’14, of Norwood, Mass., has been awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to Turkey where she will teach English to Turkish college students during the 2014-15 academic year. She also plans to conduct a small research project to better understand what rights and services deaf students in Turkey receive.
Domaney is a political science and psychology double major with a deaf studies minor. After completing the Fulbright program, Domaney looks forward to teaching special education through Teach for America. She also hopes to remain active in the deaf community either through interpreting or advocacy work.
At Holy Cross, Domaney is co-chair of ABiGaLe/Allies, a group that raises awareness about and discusses lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender-related topics. She is also part of the Counseling Outreach Peer Educators, which promotes emotional well-being on campus, and a member of the Holy Cross Dance Marathon steering committee, which raises money for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
Each year approximately 1,900 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.
