Fulbright Recipient - Armand Aibara ‘21
Armand Aibara ‘21, German Studies and Political Science major, received a Fulbright Award to serve as an English Teaching Assistant in Germany.
Armand is SCU’s third Fulbright recipient this year (AY 2020-2021), this is particularly notable as it is a time when many programs have severely curtailed the number of awards they are bestowing.
Armand had these thoughts to share:
“I am excited to be traveling to Germany to work in the capacity of an English Teaching Assistant, in addition to representing the US as a cultural ambassador. I will be teaching German students English, and educating them on our vibrant, diverse American culture, and fun way of life. I would also like to say that this could not have been achieved without SCU’s outstanding Modern Languages Department and the German Studies program in particular, and its commitment to instilling in students a love for foreign languages and cultures. I am honored to be selected for such a prestigious scholarship, and I look forward to a great experience in Germany! I am thrilled to begin this new chapter in my life!” -- Armand Aibara, Class of ‘21
