My name is Lauren Groffsky and I was the inaugural Larry D. King Fellow (2017). I knew that after graduation I wanted to move abroad, and when I heard about the Larry D. King Post-Graduate Fellowship, it sounded like the perfect opportunity. The fellowship allowed me to live abroad, immerse myself in a Spanish-speaking country, and develop my professional skills and goals. I found the fellowship to be very rewarding and felt that the work I did was both valuable and valued. I enjoyed living in Sevilla so much that I decided to stay in the city another year; I have been teaching English this year and am planning to stay a third year as well. I would highly recommend this fellowship to any graduating Spanish major interested in working in a positive and supportive work environment all while living abroad and improving their language skills.
My name is Kyle Ellison and I am the 2018 Larry D. King Fellowship. After studying abroad in Mexico, I wanted to continue living in a Spanish-speaking country so that I could continue to improve my Spanish and experience a new culture. I had already accepted a job when I got an email from the department announcing the fellowship. I decided to apply, and ultimately was offered the fellowship and accepted it knowing that it too great of an opportunity to turn down. My time in Sevilla allowed me to work on some personal and professional goals that otherwise I doubt I would´ve had the time for. I strongly recommend applying to the fellowship for any Spanish undergraduate who hopes to live abroad and use their Spanish!
