RIT medical illustration graduate wins Fulbright teaching assistantship
Victoria Maung ’20 MFA (medical illustration) is capping her college career with a Fulbright grant that will give her an international experience and a connection to her Southeast Asian roots.
With the help of RIT Global, Maung, from San Francisco, Calif., won a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to teach high school in Malaysia. The program runs from January to October 2021, and Maung is hopeful international travel restrictions will be eased by next year. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Maung is only the second RIT student to win an English Teaching Assistantship, and the first in 14 years, said James Myers, RIT’s associate provost for International Education and Global Programs.
