The February 22nd online edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education includes a feature story on Fulbright’s efforts to seek a more diverse pool of scholars and students. This year’s edition also provides the lists of "Top Producing" schools – those institutions in each Carnegie Classification that had the highest number of students and scholars who received Fulbright grants this year.
The Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program, is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 360,000 participants with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. In the United States, the Institute of International Education administers and coordinates activities relevant to the Fulbright Student Program and Fulbright Scholar Program on behalf of the U.S Department of State. You can find out more about the Fulbright Scholar Program at cies.org, or on the State Department's Fulbright website.
To view the full list of grantees for 2015-2016, visit our Scholar Directory. To find out details on your campus's involvement with the Fulbright Scholar Program, please contact Peter Vanderwater; for details regarding the Fulbright Student Program, please contact Tony Claudino.
Congratulations to all those institutions whose scholars and students received Fulbright grants this year and especially to those listed in this year's top producing lists. We would like to thank the Fulbright Scholar Liaisons for their efforts to promote the program on their campuses.
