In Cambodia, Dyson will work with English Language Program (ELP) teachers at the Cambodian Village Fund in rural Prey Touch Commune to design, implement, and research culturally sustaining arts integration in the ELP. The goal is to allow this integration to become self-sustaining and fill a gap in current research of arts education and integration.  

Moya will teach English and lead community programs with a focus on teaching American culture to Colombian students, particularly entrepreneurship and individualism. His ultimate goal is to strengthen ties between the United States and Colombia and enhance socioeconomic, political, and cultural opportunities between the two countries and across the Western Hemisphere.

More than 2,000 Fulbright U.S. Students — recent college graduates, graduate students, and early career professionals from all backgrounds — pursue graduate study, conduct research, or teach English in schools abroad each year.

They are recognized alongside more than 800 faculty, researchers, administrators, and established professionals who teach or conduct research in affiliation with institutes abroad annually through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program. Recipients of Fulbrights form ongoing research collaborations and lay the groundwork for future partnerships between institutions.  

Since 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided over 400,000 talented and accomplished students, scholars, teachers, artists, and professionals of all backgrounds with the opportunity to study, teach, and conduct research abroad. Fulbrighters exchange ideas, build people-to-people connections, and work to address complex global challenges. Notable Fulbrighters include 62 Nobel Laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners, 80 MacArthur Fellows, 41 heads of state or government, and thousands of leaders across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.

Fulbright is a program of the U.S. Department of State, with funding provided by the U.S. Government. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations, and foundations around the world also provide direct and indirect support to the Program, which has operated in over 160 countries worldwide.  In the United States, the Institute of International Education implements the Fulbright U.S. Student and U.S. Scholar Programs on behalf of the U.S. Department of State.
