UTSA Student Receives Fulbright Student Grant

June 23, 2020

David Diaz, a recent graduate of UTSA and a former student of Dr. Liang Ward, Lecturer 2 in Chinese, has received a grant from the Fulbright Student Program to teach in Taipei City, Taiwan. Diaz will teach English in Taiwan for a year beginning in Fall 2020.

David Diaz Statement

I am a Spring 2020 graduate of the Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) degree program at UTSA. I was recently awarded an English Teaching Assistantship grant in April 2020 from the Fulbright Student Program for the 2020-2021 school year in Taipei City, Taiwan. In 2018 I began my TESL studies at UTSA and worked as a graduate assistant for my department and program. While at UTSA, I have also taken Chinese language courses for a year under the instruction of Dr. Liang Ward where my interest in the cultures and languages of Taiwan grew even further, applying for both UTSA’s Taiwan Study-Abroad Program and Taiwan’s Huayu Enrichment Scholarship for Summer 2020. I recommend that students interested in UTSA’s study abroad program in Taiwan and the Huayu Scholarship (intensive Chinese language study in Taiwan) contact Dr. Liang Ward and the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures for more information.
