17 UT Students Offered Fulbright Awards

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, recorded another impressive year for Fulbright Student awards, matching last year’s numbers with 17 current students and recent graduates offered fellowships and another four students named alternates.

These students will join the more than 2,100 US citizens who will study, conduct research, teach English, and provide expertise abroad for the 2020–21 academic year through the Fulbright US Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement and their record of service and leadership potential in their respective fields.

Earlier this year, UT was named one of the nation’s top-producing Fulbright Student campuses of 2019–20, ranking seventh among public research universities and first in the SEC for a second consecutive year. This year’s Fulbright Student awards are a continuation of that success.
