Education Student Selected as a Fulbright Scholar


Re’Nyqua Farrington, student at NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice has been selected as a Fulbright Scholar.

Re’Nyqua started at NSU in 2016, majoring in Secondary English Education with a minor in Spanish, setting her sights on becoming a bilingual speaker and career educator. While studying at NSU, Re’Nyqua tapped into diverse educational opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. She has worked closely with the Farquhar Honors College as an Honors Advocate and Peer Coordinator, served twice as Peer Leader for the First Year Experience course,  worked as a Peer Writing Consultant and Fellow at NSU’s Writing Center, and volunteered as a reviewer for NSU’s literary journal Digressions.

Last winter, she studied abroad in Spain and learned about the opportunity to serve as an English Teaching Assistant (ETA) in the Fulbright program. After learning about the program, which perfectly merged her interests in education and Spanish, Re’Nyqua applied and received the news she was selected as a recipient of this honor in April. She is expected to begin her program in Honduras in January 2021.

Re’Nyqua was also a 2019 recipient of the U.S. Dept. of State Gilman Scholarship, as well as the 2016 Gates Millennium Scholarship.
