Dr. Nuria Alonso García, associate professor of Spanish, has received a Fulbright Scholar Global Teaching English as a Foreign Language Award (TEFL) to Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Each year, about 1,700 U.S. citizens pursue research or teaching assistantships in more than 155 countries through the Fulbright Program, an international education exchange opportunity sponsored by the U.S. government. Scholars from other countries also travel to teach and study in the United States.
The TEFL program is open to U.S. citizens with doctorates or master’s degrees in applied linguistics, teaching English as a foreign language or for speakers of other languages, second language acquisition, or related fields.
Alonso García will spend the 2014-15 academic year collaborating with the Institute of Applied Linguistics at the Saint Petersburg State Polytechnical University, where she will be teaching seminars in language acquisition and sociolinguistics and offering workshops in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). These courses will build on the work Alonso García has been engaged in locally, partnering with Providence nonprofits to support populations with limited English proficiency. Read more.

Mr. Walsh, who majored in business and chemistry and worked at the DuPont Chemical Corp. for 40 years, was a Platinum Torchbearer for gifts of $1 million and above in PC’s 1917 Society.
