Rhodes seniors Carley Jo Goggans and Fonda Lilly Wilkinson have been selected to receive Fulbright U.S. Student Awards for the 2022-2023 academic year. They will serve as English Teaching Assistants in their assigned countries—Goggans in Estonia and Wilkinson in Germany—beginning in the fall. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
For senior Emily Perry, it was the fulfillment of a lifelong ambition when she spent the fall of 2017 in a small Russian city just north of the Mongolian border, studying Russian literature and economics. 

The Rhodes senior is pursuing a double major in international studies and Russian studies. “While in Kazakhstan, I will further examine how this Central Asian republic, with two official languages, intends to implement English language programs as part of its ambitious development goals,” he says.
