Munguia Nunez named to national fellowship
Natiely Munguia Nunez is one of nine students in the nation to be named to the final cohort of the Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Aspiring Teachers of Color Fellowship. Munguia Nunez was nominated through the University of Arizona (UA) and was named a national recipient along with students attending Swarthmore College, the University of Chicago, Wellesley College and the University of Washington, among other institutions. Each fellow will receive a $30,000 stipend toward earning a master’s degree in education, and commit to spending three years working in a high-need public school upon graduating. Munguia Nunez, who earned her political science and Spanish degrees from the University of Arizona in December, 2012, will begin the UA’s Teach Arizona program this year, which is offered in Tucson and Phoenix, while working toward her master’s degree. She plans to remain in Arizona as a Spanish teacher.
