Allie Dunbaugh ’20 first encountered The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) when she participated in TFAS Santiago in 2020. Since then, she has had a desire to help other young leaders have similarly enriching experiences. She believes her position as the communications coordinator allows her to do this.
A Colorado native, Allie graduated summa cum laude in 2020 from the University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in communication and international affairs. She was an active member and leader in her university’s club tennis team and the co-ed Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity. Allie recently earned her master’s degree in Latin American international affairs from the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University. She has a passion for traveling and immersing herself in new cultures, especially those found in Latin America, and desires to serve others however she can. Her travels have taken her to five Latin American countries and four European countries, and she has found that the people she has met abroad are always the best part of any adventure.
