Two Notre Dame Grads, Baltimore County Residents Get Fulbrights

For the first time in the school’s history, Notre Dame (ours, not that not-so-good-at-lacrosse school in Indiana, natch) will send two graduates abroad on Fulbright fellowships this fall. Read on, and prepare to be impressed.

Brianna January of Essex was awarded a fellowship to teach English in Mexico. Some might use that as an excuse to goof off for the summer, but January’s taking the opposite tack; next week she leaves for Guatemala, where she’ll be conducting research under the auspices of a Davis Project for Peace Scholarship.

(In case you’re not familiar with it — and I wasn’t! — the Project for Peace is a new-ish fund established by rich lady/philanthropist Kathryn Davis, who celebrated her 100th birthday in 2007 by deciding to fund a bunch of $10,000 “projects for peace” designed and implemented by undergraduate students. Last year, January received her first Project for Peace scholarship, for an inter-generational arts project in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Lima. Notre Dame has received at least one scholarship every year since the program was founded.)

Lauren McCusker, resident of Sparrows Point, will head to South Korea in early July on her Fulbright. McCusker also has experience working internationally, albeit on different continents than January:  she was a member of the university’s School Sisters program last year, for which she taught English in Mako, Hungary.

You might want to write these names down, Baltimore — we have a feeling they might be up to great things in the future.

    Thanks for the love, Rachel! Actually this is the 4th time Notre Dame has a duo of Fulbrights. We are very proud of Brianna, Lauren and all of our young women who have achieved this great honor over the years.
