Well-Traveled UGA Student Wins Third National Scholarship

Christina Faust, a University of Georgia (UGA) honors student, is one of 12 national recipients of the 2009-2010 George J. Mitchell Postgraduate Scholarship. She will use her fellowship to study immunology and global health at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.

Faust, who is pursuing a dual bachelor’s/master’s degree in ecology, was previously named a 2008 Truman Scholar and a 2008 Udall Scholar. She was chosen from a pool of 300 candidates and is UGA’s first Mitchell Scholarship recipient. Faust has studied, volunteered and traveled to five continents. Her most recent trip took her to Nanjing, China, where she spent three weeks at the Jiangsu Provincial Center for Disease Control. She is planning to participate in a study-abroad program in Antarctica in December.

The Mitchell Postgraduate Scholarship, named in honor of the former U.S. senator who served as chairman of the historic peace negotiations in Northern Ireland in 1998, is a nationally competitive fellowship sponsored by the U.S.-Ireland Alliance for one-year of graduate study in any discipline offered by institutions in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
