Caroline Zullo ’15
Caroline Zullo ’15, a Global Studies and Political Science double major, was recently selected for the Carnegie Junior Fellows Program. She will serve as UNC’s first recipient of the one-year award and is one of only 14 students chosen from an applicant pool of almost 200. This award provides Caroline with the opportunity to work with the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, DC as a paid research assistant to the endowment’s senior associates.
Originally from Raleigh, Caroline was an involved member of the Carolina community during her four years on campus. She served on the Honor Court, the Executive Board of the Campus Y, and as Co-President of ENRICH (an English as a Second Language tutoring program).
A Buckley Public Service scholar as well, Caroline secured a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowship to study Arabic in Egypt and Morocco. She also completed internships with UNC’s Center for Global Initiatives and the Middle East Institute.
As Mary-Floyd Wilson, director of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Office of Distinguished Scholarships, observed in the press release announcing Caroline’s selection,
“The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace not only recognizes that her prodigious skills in languages, research, and political analysis will advance their research, but this fellowship also honors Caroline’s passionate dedication to international conflict resolution.”
Caroline is currently teaching English to Palestinian high school students in East Jerusalem through the Amideast Educational and Training Services.
