Bethany Bradshaw (’11) has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Program 
scholarship for an English teaching assistantship position in Turkey.

Bradshaw learned this summer that she would be teaching English at a 
university near the western coast of Turkey. Bradshaw is one of 1,700 U.S. 
citizens who will work abroad during the 2013-14 academic year.

“It’s just great because I had thought about teaching overseas anyway, and 
to have it funded from such a reputable institution–I feel really good 
about that,” Bradshaw told the Henderson (Texas) Daily New. “It’s 
definitely a great way to make connections, and Fulbright has a really big 
alumni network that can hopefully benefit me in the future.” Bradshaw 
alsoeager to be immersed in Turkish culture and learn more about 
Eastern Europe.

Bradshaw graduated from ACU with a B.A. in English. Earlier this year, she 
graduated with a master’s degree in American and British literature from 
North Carolina State University.

According to the U.S. State Department and the J. William Fulbright Foreign 
Scholarship Board, recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis 
of academic and professional achievement, as well as demonstrated 
leadership potential.
