Savannah Tenney, a senior at Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. and a native of Sudbury, Mass., has won a Fulbright award to teach English in Taiwan.
Tenney, a double major in anthropology and English, is one of
seven Wheaties so far this spring to receive a Fulbright English Teaching
Assistantship. Her Fulbright will take her to the Taiwanese archipelago of
Kinmen, located just off the coast of mainland China, for an 11-month post
starting in August.
“I decided to apply for a Fulbright because I knew I wanted to take a few years off between now and applying to graduate schools, and I knew I wanted to spend some of that time abroad, doing something that I felt was productive and important,” Tenney said.
