Record Number of Students Earn Fulbrights for International Study, Teaching
Eight UT students—the largest number to date—have been offered prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards for the 2017–18 academic year to study and teach in cities around the globe.
Andrew Seidler, director of UT’s Office of National Scholarship and Fellowships, said this was a record-setting year for UT in the Fulbright Student Program, with the largest number of awards offered (eight) and semifinalists (18) in UT history.
“I’m thrilled for the students and for UT. Having this much participation and success in the Fulbright competition says a lot about how our students are increasingly seeing the Fulbright as an important and attainable pursuit,” Seidler said, noting that the last year saw 42 students—the most ever—apply for Fulbrights.
