Northwestern University produced 32 Fulbright grant recipients in the past year — the highest number for any U.S. school.
The tally was produced by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The rankings are from Fulbright scholarships awarded to last year’s applicants, and the majority of winners are already abroad.
From one student in Denmark studying fisheries to another in Venezuela examining a music education program, NU alumni are taking advantage of Fulbrights across the globe, said Stephen Hill, associate director of the Office of Fellowships.
The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, and annually awards more than $270 million in funds for research, graduate study and teaching opportunities across the world.
