NDSU alumna Emily Hagemeister, BA ’05 and MS ’09, of Argusville, N.D., was selected as one of 18 Fulbright Alumni Ambassadors who will represent and promote the Fulbright U.S. Student Programs.
As an ambassador, Hagemeister will speak about Fulbright experiences at campus presentations and conferences and offer tips about applying for Fulbright grants in articles, webinars, interviews and at special events nationwide, with special attention on helping increase the diversity of Fulbright applicants.
Hagemeister was awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in Amman, Jordan, for the 2009-10 academic year. “It’s a great honor to represent the Fulbright program as an Alumni Ambassador,” says Hagemeister. “I look forward to helping Fulbright reach a broader pool of applicants and change lives, as it did mine.”
