Ashley Fuchs

Ashley Fuchs, C’22, has been named a 2024 Marshall Scholar, an award that funds as many as three years of study for a graduate degree in any field in an institution in the United Kingdom. She is among 51 individuals representing 34 U.S. institutions.

At Penn, Fuchs double majored in political science and classical studies with concentrations in American politics and classical civilization. She was also a Ben Franklin Scholar. Currently, she is on a Fulbright Scholarship in Narva, Estonia, where she is teaching English.
As a Marshall Scholar, Fuchs plans to focus on the nexus between international politics and heritage studies as she pursues graduate degrees, first studying global crime, justice, and security at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, then moving to the University of Cambridge in England to do a program in heritage studies.
