Claudia Chlebek

When she arrived at North Central, Claudia knew she wanted international travel to be part of her college experience. By her senior year, she had logged 63 weeks of study abroad. She spent much of her time overseas immersed in economics research, and during one of her trips she began to ponder the significance of the free movement of people between countries that ultimately became the basis of a Fulbright Grant research proposal.

Claudia’s proposal was one of 11 chosen for work in the European Union. Just 36 hours after hearing this good news, she learned that she’d also won a second prestigious award–the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship, which funds a two-year master’s degree in economy, state and society.

Claudia credits hard work for her success. “I was determined and I strove to find all the opportunities I could. Then I made the best of those opportunities.”
