Graduate students, recent Brown alumni land 38 Fulbright scholarships

Brown continues to rank among the top institutions for recipients of the prestigious international award, which offers students the opportunity to conduct research or teach in countries across the globe.

Thirty-six recent Brown alumni and two graduate students have received Fulbright awards for the 2019-20 academic year to teach English or conduct independently designed research projects in countries across the globe.

Brown is consistently ranked among the top 10 Fulbright-producing institutions, and for the three prior years, students from College Hill have received more Fulbright awards than those from any other U.S. institution. Data on the top-producing schools for 2019-20 is expected to be released by the Fulbright program in early 2020.
