Seton Hall > News & Events 

KarinaKarina Kainth a Senior majoring in Diplomacy and International Relations, as well as minoring in both Asian Studies and Spanish has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, a prestigious grant that will take her to India for ten months during the 2013-2014 school year. Her application emphasized her passion for teaching, human rights advocacy, as well as her lifelong immersion in the culture and language of India. She was a finalist for last year’s Truman Scholarship, and is the first Seton Hall University Fulbrighter in this year's cohort.

After an orientation in August, she will serve as an English teacher at a school yet to be determined.  For the duration of her stay in India, the Fulbright award will pay for all transportation, living, and medical insurance expenses. Upon her return to the U.S., Ms. Kainth aims to continue her education, ultimately seeking a career in International Affairs, specifically International Media, Communications and Advocacy.

Ms. Kainth is the thirteenth Seton Hall student and eighth student studying Diplomacy and International Relations to become a Fulbright Scholar. The 2008-2009 school year brought Fulbright awards to former Diplomacy students Julia Edwards (Norway), Marie Pineda (South Korea) and Kristin Pe (Taiwan).  In 2009-2010 recipients included Stephanie Aigner, John Papaspanos (Greece) and Grace Chung (Indonesia).  Rachel Rosenstrock was awarded a grant to Taiwan in 2012.
 
Seton Hall’s growing Fulbright initiative is an important aspect of the university’s increasing internationalization efforts.
