|Andrew Holub, a graduate student in psychology, is a finalist for a 2015 Fulbright Award.|
“Thousands of high-achieving students across the United States apply for these awards,” said Graeme Harper dean of the Honors College and adviser for OU’s Fulbright Program. “Andrew has drawn on his Oakland environment in order to become a national finalist for a Fulbright. He represents the reason students come to Oakland University with aspirations to excel.”
While much of his time is devoted to graduate studies, Holub is involved in Oakland’s English as a Second Language Center, as a conversation partner, helping non-native speakers learn English.
“It’s a great way to learn about other cultures, meet interesting people and help fellow students learn a new language,” he said.
Holub spent part of last summer studying Polish at the University of Pittsburgh Summer Institute and his Fulbright application seeks an English teaching assistantship in Poland. Fulbright winners will be announced starting in February.
