Joshua Tulloch ’11 has won a Fulbright scholarship to serve as an English teaching assistant in the Czech Republic. He found inspiration during his deployment with the Marines in Japan, spending his off hours teaching English to local residents. “In the late evening, I would meet with a group of 20 to 30 Japanese citizens, both young and old, from a variety of backgrounds,” he wrote in his Fulbright application. “This was by far the most enriching experience of my tour overseas.” He chose the Czech Republic for personal reasons, citing his great-grandfather, who immigrated to the U.S. from what was then Czechoslovakia.

Having majored in biology with an English minor, Tulloch credits English Professor Patricia Ferreira for challenging him to “break out of my narrow views of other countries and peoples.” He completes his active duty service July 1, and leaves for the Czech Republic in August.
