Two SUNY Oswego alumni won prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student program awards, adding to a recent string of success while reflecting campus efforts to expand diversity in studying abroad.
Naomi Rodriguez Jose ’18, a dual major in global and international studies and in communication and social interaction, is teaching English in Brazil, while marketing alumna Tiana Morris ’16 is teaching English in Croatia under the 2019-20 Fulbright program.
Earlier this year, SUNY Oswego won an Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion in International Education Award from Diversity Abroad. The award recognized the increasing diversity of campus and ways the college ensures opportunities like studying abroad are accessible to all who are interested in it.
Since 2014, Oswego has had nine students and/or alumni receive Fulbrights, an unprecedented number that puts Oswego in elite company for a school its size. In February, Oswego was named a top producer of Fulbright U.S. Student awards, as reported by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
