A recent Texas Tech graduate has received a Fulbright Award.

Zachary Haskin, a Wichita Falls native, has received a scholarship from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.

Haskin will travel to Brazil to work as an English teaching assistant at a federal university from March to December 2014. He graduated in May with degrees in International Business and Spanish.

“We congratulate Zachary on this prestigious honor and are proud to have him represent Texas Tech University as he engages students in Brazil and collaborates with other students and researchers at an international level,” said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards grants for individual research projects or for English Teaching Assistantships. During their grants, Fulbright recipients work and live with people from the host country.
