Ten University of Notre Dame students have been awarded Fulbright grants in the 2014-15 program, placing the University among the top-producing universities in the nation.
The U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program, Fulbright recently announced the complete list of colleges and universities that produced the most 2014-15 U.S. Fulbright students. The success of the top-producing institutions is highlighted in Thursday’s edition (Feb. 12) of The Chronicle of Higher Education.
“Notre Dame’s inclusion on the list of top producing institutions of Fulbright U.S. students is a sign of our expanded commitment to internationalization, along with the important work of Notre Dame International and the units that will make up the Keough School of Global Affairs,” said Jeffrey Thibert, assistant director of national fellowships in Notre Dame’s Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE). “Our students are especially competitive for the Fulbright not simply because so many engage with the world through coursework and study abroad, but because of the depth of the engagement the University encourages. The Fulbright allows our students to take the international education they have begun at Notre Dame to another level, better preparing them to become representatives of the University on the international stage as they pursue their increasingly global careers.”
