This year, Pitt senior Natalie Arutynov is living with a host family in Tbilisi, Georgia, where she’s interning at the Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies and studying the Georgian language. Her work is being supported by the National Security Education David L. Boren Scholarship, a competitive scholarship that supports U.S. undergraduate students who are studying in areas of the world that are critical to national security interests. Arutynov, who is majoring in economics and political science, was born in Georgia but immigrated with her family to the United States when she was 5 years old.
