Julia Sievert ’12 Earns Fulbright Fellowship

Posted on April 17th, 2012.

Knox senior Julia Sievert has been chosen for a highly selective Fulbright fellowship for international study. The Seattle, Washington, native will teach English in Germany. An environmental studies major, Sievert has two minors: one in German and the other in studio art with a focus on ceramics. She is president of the Knox Outdoor Recreation Club and a member of German Club and Friends of Green Oaks. She also attends and plays in the bell choir at Trinity Lutheran Church in Galesburg. As part of her Fulbright experience, she plans to immerse herself in her new community. One way to do that, Sievert said, will be to share her love of crafts. She spent time last year in Freiburg, Germany, an area known for ceramics.
