Beatrice Handlin

The Language Center and the Institute of Linguistics  are thrilled to announce that Communications and Technology Assistant, Beatrice Handlin has been awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) grant in Bulgaria for the 2024-2025 school year. This grant aims to improve the quality of English language instruction in Bulgarian schools and to expand the educational and cultural exchange between Bulgaria and the United States.

Beatrice has worked at the Language Center since Fall 2021, when she was hired as a student office and administrative assistant. She worked at the center throughout her undergraduate degree and in Fall 2023 she graduated from the University of Minnesota, with a BA in English and Creative Writing and a track in Secondary Education. After her graduation, she transitioned into working full time for the two units.

She wants to thank the Language Center and Institute of Linguistics staff members and community for their support throughout her years in undergrad and the Fulbright application process. She will continue to work in both units until her departure in late August.
