Penn State Schuylkill student receives Fulbright

Angel Zheng, who attended Penn State Schuylkill 2008-2010, will receive a Fulbright grant for 2012-2013 to study and teach in Macau. Ten such Penn State students were selected, from a field of 56, to do research and to teach English in diverse, non-English speaking countries. Penn State is one of the top universities in the country for successful student Fulbright applications. The concept of the program is one of exchanging students, teachers and university faculty from the United States with students and researchers throughout the world to help maintain peace and understanding.

Zheng was enrolled in the 2+2 program at Penn State where a student attends a campus location for two years and then completes their degree at University Park. When Zheng completed her two years at Penn State Schuylkill, she went on to earn a bachelor of science in education and public policy in 2011 at University Park, where she graduated as a Schreyer's Honors College student. She is currently enrolled as a graduate student in the master of arts program in educational theory and policy at University Park.

Zheng returned to Penn State Schuylkill in the spring of 2011 as the featured speaker at the campus' annual scholarship dinner, held at the Schuylkill Country Club.

Penn State Schuylkill is pleased to acknowledge Ms. Zheng and her accomplishments.
