Sophie Maddocks
Year of Matriculation: 2009




Sophie Maddocks, an alumnus from the HSPS faculty at the University of Cambridge, has received a Fulbright Award to enable her to study at The New School on one of the most prestigious and selective scholarship programmes operating world-wide.

As a participant, Sophie has been selected to pursue a Master’s degree in Media Studies at The New School for Public Engagement in New York. She will study how online tools can be better used to tackle gender-based discrimination; taking courses in media theory, media production, and global youth media. Sophie will also undertake practical work with activist groups in the US.

After graduating from Fitzwilliam College in 2012, Sophie joined the Teach First programme and earned a PGCE from the University of Warwick. She now works for an education think-tank and a respite charity.

Each year, the US-UK Fulbright Commission supports UK and US citizens to study, lecture, conduct research or focus on professional development at leading institutions in the US and UK respectively. Nearly 325,000 extraordinary women and men from all over the world have had their lives changed as participants in the Fulbright Programme. Of these alumni, approximately 15,000 UK nationals have studied in the US and nearly 12,000 US nationals in the UK on our educational exchange programmes.
