Greetings from Austin, Texas. My name is Courtney Dymowski and I am incredibly honored to be named this year’s recipient of the Davies-Jackson Scholarship. I recently graduated from St. Edward’s University with a B.A. in Photocommunications and a minor in Art History. 

I learned of the scholarship from my fellowship advisor, Caroline Morris, during the process of applying for the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Thailand.

After submitting my Davies-Jackson application, it was not until early January that I was informed of the fantastic news: I had been awarded the Davies-Jackson Scholarship.

I was elated beyond belief and still, with only four months until I move to England, I cannot fully fathom this great opportunity and change that is about to occur.

Until the ‘big move,’ I have plans to spend as much time in Texas, yet still squeezing in a bit of travel.

I am going to be visiting my friend who is doing research in Ghana. We plan on traveling around the country, seeing things we both have yet to experience. I studied abroad there two years ago with this same friend and it should be exciting to go back to a country of which I am so fond. Aside from Ghana, I will be spending lots of quality time with friends and family at home. I have grand plans of going camping, swimming at all my favorite springs, having BBQ’s, listening to live music, and just soaking up the Texas rays prior to my departure.

Concerning Cambridge, apart from the weather and the monumental task of packing, I am very excited to begin studying the History of Art.

I can think of no better place to study art history than England where there is such a rich and fascinating history.

I have ambitious intentions of traveling as much and as widely as possible while abroad and I cannot wait for the challenges that go with reading at one of the top universities and living in another country.
