A Coalisland student, who will soon be jetting off to study business at a college in the USA, has been awarded a prestigious British Council Study USA scholarship.
Ciara Teague, a 21-year-old pharmacy student, has been picked to take part in the programme, having undergone a competitive selection process.
She will be heading to Wilson College in Pennsylvania.
In total, 55 students from across Northern Ireland are taking part in this year’s programme, which enables students to study business and management for a year in American colleges, across 34 States. Through the initiative, it is hoped they will gain valuable international experience and business knowledge, helping to develop their career prospects when they return to Northern Ireland. The initiative has sent over 1800 students to the USA.
