Top Producing Institutions

Fulbright U.S. Student Program, 2013-2014


Chronicle of Higher Education - Top Producing Schools


U.S. Student Top Producer

The October 28 online edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education includes a feature story on how the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has started new efforts to help 325,000 Fulbright alumni around the world use their Fulbright experiences to improve their job prospects, and a profile of a Fulbright U.S. Scholar who continues to study the stresses faced by the 40,000 or so refugee children from Burma and elsewhere as a result of her grant. 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 300,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — 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 Program at fulbrightonline.org, or on the State Department's Fulbright website.

To find out details on your campus's involvement with the Fulbright Student Program, please contact Tony Claudino at IIE; for details regarding the Fulbright Scholar Program, please contact Peter Vanderwater at CIES.

Congratulations to all those institutions whose 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 Program Advisers for their successful advising of their students.

If you are a non-U.S. citizen looking to applying for a Fulbright grant to study in the United States you will apply to the Fulbright Program for Foreign Students in your home country.

U.S. Citizen but not a Student

If you are a U.S. citizen, hold a bachelor’s degree, and do not have a PhD degree then you could be eligible for certain awards within the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.  Please review the program summary for the country where you would like to apply.

Artist

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program welcomes applications in the creative and performing arts.  Arts candidates for the U.S. Student Program should have relatively limited professional experience in the fields (typically 5 years or less) in which they are applying.  Artists with more experience should consider applying for Fulbright Scholar Program.
