Prost! Congratulations to Ryan McEvoy, who was awarded a Fulbright grant to teach English in Germany. The borough son is a senior at the University of Richmond.

Ryan is triple majoring in German studies, international studies, and history, with a focus on world politics and diplomacy, and minoring in Jewish studies.

Ryan will be traveling to North-Rhine Westphalia and teaching from September 2017 through June 2018.

“While in Germany, I am also interested in exploring the possibility of pursuing an additional community engagement activity such as an internship that would allow me to work with newly resettled refugees,” Ryan said.

He has also participated in multiple study abroad projects during his time at University of Richmond, including two summers in Berlin, and trips to Poland and Israel. He spent a semester abroad in Bangalore, India, where he completed coursework in Indian culture and history, international development, and elementary Hindi.

“These opportunities have not only allowed me to sharpen my language skills, but also to develop the relevant cultural competency needed for successful in-country engagement,” he explained.

When Ryan returns to the States he plans on attending the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

“Ryan made the most of his time abroad as an undergraduate and used this experience to write a compelling application for a Fulbright award,” said Martha Merritt, international education dean. “Fulbright recognizes both academic achievement and a desire to serve as an educational ambassador for the United States.”

Standing O wishes Ryan good luck.
