“Getting a Fulbright Scholarship is an incredible honor and really speaks to Mackenzie’s rich experience studying and volunteering in China, as well as pursuing Mandarin studies after her return home,” said Jan Bender Shetler, director of global engagement. “A global education at Goshen College gave Mackenzie the skills and perspectives to be able to leverage a great opportunity like this to shape her future career.”

Miller’s project is entitled, “The Role of Mandarin Chinese in Taiwanese Indigenous Language Revitalization.” While at GC, Mackenzie studied journalism and English. She also previously studied in China and shared her experiences with fellow students as a Global Citizen Ambassador.
