Dana Moze-Kadavy
  • Dana Moze-Kadavy, a Cortland native and graduate of Norris High School, graduated from Nebraska in May 2019 with a degree in global studies. She has been awarded a Fulbright to teach English in Malaysia. Having lived in India for a year on a Boren scholarship to learn Hindi, she is looking forward to continuing her work in Asia and further engaging with its people, languages and cultures.
  • Moze-Kadavy has taught English as a Second Language through Southeast Community College for the past year. She prepares vocabulary lists, organizes class materials, leads discussions and assists her co-teacher. As a language student herself, she understands how important it is to connect language learning to areas of interest and daily life. Since many of her SCC students are refugee mothers, she works to make sure they are building a vocabulary they can use every day. Moze-Kadavy wants to use her Fulbright to give rural students access to resources that were not available to her growing up in rural Nebraska. She also wants to teach English that is relevant to their daily lives. She plans to offer weekly after-school geography classes focused on the United States.
  • The flagship international educational exchange program of the U.S. Department of State, Fulbright provides fully-funded opportunities to spend 1 academic year abroad in a specific host country. The heart of the Fulbright exchange program is the mission to foster mutual understanding between nations, advance knowledge across communities, and improve lives around the world. Fulbright students build lasting relationships and networks, as well as career-relevant skills, like cultural competency. Graduating seniors, recent alumni, and graduate students may apply for Fulbright U.S. Student awards.
