Emily Ulrich

Academic Writing Program Director

I have earned my MA and MPhil in Medieval Studies at Yale University, and now work as a research assistant and teaching fellow at Yale. As part of my teaching responsibilities, I teach essay writing, workshops student essays, and grade student papers. Based on my teaching experience at Yale, educational background and my passion for academics, I designed the Scholar Launch U.S. College Writing Seminar.

I earned a PhD in Latin American History from Emory University. Previously, I completed a BA in History and Hispanic Studies at the University of Nottingham and an MSc in Latin American Studies at the University of Oxford. At Scholar Launch, I help pair students with Faculty Advisors and Teaching Assistants who are passionate about their fields and who can guide and collaborate with students on individualized as well as team-based Research Practicums.

I have an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. Having studied in China, Europe and the United States, I saw huge gaps in edcational and professional resources between the United States and other parts of the world. Therefore, I've dedicated myself to bridging those gaps by providing a platform for students anywhere in the world to access top academic and career resources.
