St. Norbert College Student Receives Fulbright Scholarship

From St. Norbert College, June 3, 2019

St. Norbert College student Emily Steuer (Green Bay, Wis.) has been awarded a Fulbright Program scholarship to Hamburg, Germany, where she will work in a German school as an English teaching assistant next year. During her year abroad, Steuer will teach primary-or-secondary school-aged students and hopes to build a bridge between Germans and Americans through English as a shared language. Steuer recently graduated magna cum laude from St. Norbert with a major in sociology. She also studied German. Steuer plans to pursue a master’s degree in public health after her Fulbright experience.

“Fulbright is the “flagship program” for students wanting to work or teach abroad, and holds a special place for students who want to go on in higher education,” said Nick Humphrey, St. Norbert College’s Fulbright Program advisor and assistant professor of modern languages and literatures. “It is an honor, which will greatly enhance the recipient’s chances of obtaining future employment with the government or other prestigious employers.”

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program, offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary- and secondary-school teaching worldwide. The program currently awards approximately 2,000 grants annually in all fields of study and operates in more than 140 countries worldwide. Fulbright U.S. Student alumni populate a range of professions and include ambassadors, members of Congress, judges, heads of corporations, university presidents, journalists, artists, professors and teachers.
