About Lindsey

Lindsey Houchin works with students pursuing competitive scholarships and fellowships for study abroad and graduate study via the Gilman Scholarship, Freeman Awards for Study in Asia, and many more. She also helps students pursue public service careers by reviewing resumes, cover letters, and assisting with graduate fellowships, such as the Pickering, Rangel, and Payne fellowships.

Lindsey earned a B.A. in English from WKU before embarking on what she calls a “scenic route” in education. While teaching at a refugee center in South Africa, she studied Education Administration, Planning, and Social Policy at the University of Cape Town as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar. After returning to WKU to pursue a M.A. in English, she earned a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to teach future teachers of English in Osijek, Croatia. She eventually landed back in Bowling Green as a high school English and journalism teacher at Bowling Green High School.

Her return to WKU is with a homecoming slant, as she worked with the Office of Scholar Development to earn her Rotary and Fulbright grants, which supported seminal experiences in her academic and professional careers.


Lindsey is a native of Bowling Green, Kentucky--but her sense of "home" stretches farther than that, thanks to long-term travel. She actively supports the Women’s Fund of South Central Kentucky and the International Center of Kentucky, where she served as a Refugee Youth Mentor. In 2021, she became a Jonesville Academy mentor to five scholars. She also mentors student leaders within Kappa Delta Sorority as a Chapter Advisory Board member.
