Student selected for prestigious Fulbright award
Jacob Singleton, Missouri State University graduate student pursuing a Master of Arts in European history, was recently awarded a U.S. Student Fulbright award to Germany for 2012-2013. While there, he will also participate in an English teaching assistantship in Sachsen-Anhalt.
The Fulbright Scholar program was designed to immerse individuals into the cultures they are studying and allow for individualized research projects.
“Ultimately, it is my goal to serve as a cultural ambassador within the community that I will be living and working in,” said Singleton.
Singleton holds a bachelor’s degree in German and a bachelor’s in history education.
“History, particularly German history, has interested me since childhood and the ability to study the German language upon becoming a university student not only made historical inquiry a possibility, but was also an immense joy in itself,” said Singleton. “I chose to pursue education because it best suited my passion for working with and helping people.”
Eligible students endure a rigorous year-long application process with final selection by a presidentially-appointed Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
