Twenty University of Notre Dame students and alumni have been awarded Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants to learn or teach abroad in 2019-20. Five alternates and 18 semifinalists also were named, for a total of 43 students and alumni recognized.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program, offering grants to research, study and teach abroad. Top-producing institutions are highlighted annually in the Chronicle of Higher Education. Notre Dame has appeared on this list for five consecutive years, coming in second among all institutions in the nation for the 2017-18 list.
Undergraduate and graduate students and alumni apply for the program with help from the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE) or the Graduate School Office of Grants and Fellowships.
“On behalf of CUSE, I congratulate this year’s recipients, alternates and semifinalists, all of whom have achieved something of note,” said Jeffrey Thibert, the Paul and Maureen Stefanick Director of CUSE. “Notre Dame’s consistently strong outcomes in the Fulbright U.S. Student Program are a direct result of the outstanding opportunities that the University provides to both our undergraduates and graduate students to pursue meaningful international research and to serve both domestic and international communities through teaching, and the excellent advising available to our students through CUSE, the Graduate School and their faculty and staff mentors.”
