Each year the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces the top-producing institutions for the Fulbright Program, the US government’s flagship international educational exchange program. The Chronicle of Higher Education published the list today.

“I am so proud of our students who earned Fulbrights, as well as the faculty and staff who supported them in this achievement,” said Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor David Manderscheid. “Applying for these awards is a rigorous process even for the most accomplished students, so we celebrate their achievement—and feel rewarded in knowing the university has helped equip them with the tools and opportunities they need to become tomorrow’s leaders.”
