Padric Gleason ’10Padric Gleason, who double majored in Hispanic studies and international relations, has been awarded a Fulbright Binational Business Grant. The grants are awarded to students who are interested in combining coursework in international business or law with an internship at a Mexico-based company conducting international or legal business. The goal is to enhance knowledge, expertise and understanding of post-NAFTA Mexico. “Living and working in Mexico will tie together my lifelong study of Latin American culture with my postgraduate business studies and professional background,” says Gleason, who currently lives in San Francisco after completing his master’s degree in international business practice in Bangkok, Thailand.
