Skyler Stark-Ragsdale '21 Wins Fulbright ETA to Mozambique

CC is proud to share that Skyler Stark-Ragsdale ’21 has won a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Award to Mozambique. Stark-Ragsdale will be teaching English to high school students with a focus on journalism to facilitate written and communicative learning.

“I am very excited and honored to be awarded this chance to live in Mozambique,” he says. “It is amazing to have an opportunity to teach and learn from those with whom I will work.”

Stark-Ragsdale is one of 12 Fulbright semifinalists from CC this year, tying the record set in 2019 and 2021. CC is a three-time "Top Fulbright Producing Institution."     

Stark-Ragsdale was a Film and Media Studies major at CC who earned his Master’s in Journalism at Emerson College. He says he’s interested in a career in both journalism and teaching.

He credits Roy Jo Sartin, Writing Center Specialist and Fulbright Adviser, with lending valuable support for his project. “Skyler will be a terrific ETA in Mozambique. He is genuinely curious about the world, welcoming of challenges, adaptable and resilient,” Sartin says. “I noticed these qualities during his Fulbright application process, and I know they will serve him well during his Fulbright year in Mozambique.”

The Fulbright Program at CC allows the grantee to foster cultural exchange through research, study, or the English Teaching Assistant award.
