Scott Osdras is a Program Associate for Taiwan Programs at American Councils for International Education. After graduating from Michigan State University in 2012, he got his first taste of Taiwan as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant teaching 2nd and 6th graders in Kaohsiung City. One year on, Scott wasn’t quite ready to leave his scooter and favorite night market snacks behind—ultimately staying in Taiwan for a second year as a full-time student on a Huayu Enrichment Scholarship at Tunghai University in Taichung. Scott is thrilled to now be working full time to help more Americans live and study in such a special place.
