GK Member Maggie O'Neill Awarded Fulbright Grant


Golden Key International Honour Society, founded on 29 November 1977, is an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.
This year, Golden Key member Maggie O’Neill was one of 23 Boston College students and alumni to receive the J. William Fulbright Grant. Maggie intends to use the grant to travel to Germany to teach English. Maggie recently graduated magna cum laude, double majoring in German and International Studies. During her tenure at Boston College, she served as a group leader in the International Assistant Program and was on the executive board of the BC German Club. She was also named a College of Arts & Sciences Dean’s Scholar, as well as inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and Golden Key International Honour Society. Upon the end of her Fulbright year, Maggie intends to pursue a career in educational policy.
The Fulbright Program was established upon the end of World War II to promote mutual understanding between citizens of the United States and other countries across the globe. In an attempt to foster such understanding, highly competitive, merit-based grants are awarded to students, teachers, etc. in order to study, research or exercise their talents abroad. This program is currently operating in 150+ countries worldwide.
Golden Key would like to congratulate Maggie on all of her accomplishments thus far, and wish her the best of luck in her pursuit of higher education! Click here to read more about Maggie’s story.
