Sarahann Yeh, sophomore biological sciences major, is one of fifteen recipients of the Fund for Education Abroad Scholarship. Selected from more than 1,000 applicants, she has been awarded $5,000 to study at East China Normal University at the CIEE Accelerated Chinese Language program. There she is building foundational language skills to support a career in global public health focused in East and Southeast Asia. While abroad, Yeh has been able to interact with the local community on a daily basis, and is a biweekly volunteer at a nearby elderly center as well as a volunteer at ECNU's English corner. After completing her undergraduate degree, Yeh hopes to pursue a master’s degree in Public Health and work with communities in the developing world to overcome health challenges and disparities. Yeh has previously been awarded two national scholarships: a 2013 Critical Language Scholarship for study in Malang, Indonesia and a 2014 Gilman Scholarship.
