Delayed by Pandemic, YSU Fulbright Scholar Finally Makes Way to Korea

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Youngstown State University’s most recent Fulbright Scholar will finally travel to study in South Korea after nearly a year of delays.

Emily Henline, an English and education major who graduated in May, was named a scholar in the Fulbright U.S. Student Program last spring, but her travel was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

She is set to leave Feb. 7 and must complete South Korea’s required testing and quarantine program before classes begin March 1.

Henline will pursue a master’s degree in Korean studies at Yonsei University in Seoul. She previously studied abroad at the university in the 2017-2018 academic year, focusing on Korean history, cultures and language.
