Hamilton senior Eric Green has been awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) to Germany for 2013-14. An economics major and German minor, he studied at the University of Freiburg in Germany in 2012.
Green, a Dean’s List student, is a member of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international economics honors society. He is a four-year member and served as president of the Hamilton College German Club; a peer tutor in German and economics; former Hamilton College Student Assembly class representative; a member of Chi Psi Fraternity and its social chair. Green interned as a financial analyst at NorthStar Financial in New York City in 2011 and 2012.
When he returns to the U.S. Green plans to attend graduate school and pursue a Ph.D. in international economics focusing on the German and American labor markets.
The Fulbright ETA Program, an element of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, places U.S. students as English teaching assistants in schools or universities overseas, thus improving foreign students’ English language abilities and knowledge of the United States while increasing their own language skills and knowledge of the host country. ETAs may also pursue individual study/research plans in addition to their teaching responsibilities.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.
Eric Green is the son of Kathy Shaw and Benjamin Green of Wynnewood, Pa., and is a graduate of Lower Merion High School.
