The Fulbright U.S. Student Alumni Ambassador Program has named Oklahoma State University graduate Sydney Stewart as a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador.

Stewart — who earned a bachelor's degree in animal science in 2017 and an animal science master's degree in 2020 — will serve as a representative, recruiter, and a voice for the Fulbright Program.

Stewart studied agriculture in Germany as a Fulbright grantee in 2017. Her research included various biosecurity and husbandry strategies of local livestock producers responding to federal regulations and negative consumer perceptions. While in Germany, Sydney consulted on several projects on herd health, animal welfare and food safety.

Upon her return from Germany, Sydney transitioned into the field of emergency management consulting and currently works as an analyst for a nonprofit research and analysis firm based in Arlington, Virginia. There, she specializes in emergency management, public health, and safety and infrastructure resilience.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Alumni Ambassador Program identifies and trains about 20 alumni each year to serve as representatives. They are selected through recommendations and come from a worldwide array of different socioeconomic backgrounds, institutions, fields of study and economic backgrounds.

Fulbright Alumni Ambassadors provide testimonials about their experiences at conferences and campus presentations and offer application tips in written articles, video and podcast interviews, webinars and at special events throughout the United States. 

Ambassadors play a key role in assisting potential applicants, explaining what a Fulbright grant is like and all the challenges that may occur. Most importantly, they play a significant role in increasing knowledge about Fulbright opportunities.
