Are you interested in pursuing research in Europe after graduation?  Join Fulbright-Schuman scholar Melissa Guinan (Notre Dame '12), who will share her experiences of research in Europe, explain the application process, and answer your questions.  A light reception will follow.

Melissa Guinan grew up in West Chester, Pennsylvania. She received a bachelor’s degree in political science with a minor in the Hesburgh Program in Public Service from Notre Dame in 2012. Whilst studying, she worked as a research assistant in international relations, studied abroad in Angers, France, and interned with the US Department of State in Istanbul, Turkey. After graduation, she completed a six month internship in the Office of the Secretary General of NATO and interned in the foreign policy and national security section of the Office of US Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. In September 2013, she joined The Chicago Council on Global Affairs as a program officer in the studies department, working on immigration, higher education, and Latin American issues.
As a Fulbright-Schuman scholar, Melissa has been researching policy formation processes in the EU, the OSCE, and NATO with the University of Notre Dame London Global Gateway, the Institute for European Studies at Vrije Universiteit, Brussels, and the Swedish Institute for International Affairs in Stockholm. Her focus is the implementation of gender and security policies in European regional organizations.
