Education Student Selected for Fulbright Award to Brazil
Jonathan Ware (M.Ed., '14)

WASHINGTON (June 16, 2014) – Jonathan Ware (M.Ed., '14) is the recipient of the 2014-15 Fulbright English Teaching Assistant award and will be traveling to Brazil in March 2015 to serve as a cultural ambassador from the United States.

"For young people in other countries wanting to obtain their goals, English is the catalyst to get there," Ware said. "As the language of business, English opens up doors. I will be there to help students in Brazil reach their goals while, at the same time, learning from them."

Ware graduated from Morehouse College in 2009 with a bachelorís degree in business administration. He then moved to Washington where he worked full-time as a middle school English and social studies teacher while pursuing a masterís degree in special education in the School of Education.

While at Howard, Ware was a recipient of the prestigious Helen Matthews Rand Endowed Scholarship. He also previously taught English language skills in China and Brazil in 2011. Ware said he hoped to one day establish a charter school focused on global literacy. He said he may also pursue a doctorate in special education or in education policy.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program of the United States. The programís goal is to enhance understanding between Americans and the people of other nations. Ware joins more than 100,000 Fulbright U.S. Student Program alumni who participated in the program since it began in 1948.
