April 27, 2016

Nathalie Mathis ’15 has received a Fulbright teaching grant that will send her to Argentina next spring. Mathis, who was a four-year letterwinner with the Dominican women's soccer program, graduated with a degree in international relations.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is an international educational exchange program that offers research, study and teaching opportunities in more than 140 countries to recent college graduates and graduate students. As a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant, Mathis will be assigned to an English teaching training college or university in Argentina.

Mathis hopes to create a school-to-school connection, via Skype and email, with Spanish-speaking students at Dominican. She plans to teach English and American culture and hopes to start a school club showing films that reflect American culture.

Mathis plans to get a master's degree in peace operations with a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from George Mason University's School of Policy, Government and International Affairs.
