Northeastern student Seaton Huang won a scholarship from the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad program to work, study, and volunteer in China for seven months.

The program, which is funded by the United States Department of Education to support students and faculty who want to study a foreign language overseas, brought him to Xian, China, to study at the Shaanxi Normal University and intern at the Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce, where he translated documents for the organization and managed its social media.

“This was a really challenging but rewarding experience,” said Huang, who is majoring in Asian Studies. “It forced me into a new environment where I had no choice but to work on perfecting my Chinese.”
