Rising Seniors: Apply for a Fulbright Award

Posted on May 2, 2019 | Filed under General News

Rising seniors should consider applying for a Fulbright Award to support a post-graduate year abroad. There are two types of Fulbright award. The first one supports students engaged in individual research projects. If you have a comp that would benefit from some time in the field abroad, this is the Fulbright award for you. The other type, the ETA, sends recent college graduates abroad to teach English for a year. Assignments vary from country to country, but nearly all of them are attractive. We have seen considerable success in this program over the past five years. Anyone interested in giving it a shot should reach out to Professor Patrick Jackson in the Gateway.

The Revival of Pre-Law Club

Posted on April 30, 2019 | Filed under General News

Interested in the legal field and considering law school after Allegheny? If so, Pre-Law Club could be the right club for you. In the past, Pre-Law Club allowed students to explore career options in the legal field through guest speakers, building alumni connections, and visiting law schools. While these are just a few things Pre-Law Club did in the past, other suggestions are more than welcome as this club looks to rebuild. If Pre-Law Club is of interest to you, please email Kristin Black (kblack@allegheny.edu) with your name, class year, and any suggestions that could enhance this club’s exploration of the legal field.
