#SaveFulbright on HuffPost | Jeju Conference Time!

The movement to #SaveFulbright from the proposed $30 million budget cut is spreading across the world!

We’ve been sharing the story of Fulbright everywhere and the media is starting to take notice. In the past few days, there have been pieces published in Slate, the New Republic, Inside Higher Ed, and the Washington Post. Today, the Huffington Post published my piece on the cuts.

Tomorrow morning, I’ll be heading off to Jeju island for Fulbright Korea’s spring conference. Beyond being a chance to reconnect with my fellow ETAs and a break from my new students, it’s also a time to find real inspiration. ETAs are involved in cultural diplomacy of all kinds, from producing a Black History Month event in Daegu to tutoring North Korean defectors across the country–it’s amazing what many have begun during their relatively short time here. I’m also excited to co-present on job skills and live post-Fulbright with two other ETAs. There’s a lot to translate and draw out from this experience, even (or especially) if you one doesn’t plan to go into a teaching career.

Conference is a reminder of the remarkably talented and driven community we have in the Fulbright Korea family. That, and heading to an island is always nice!
