Holy Cross Among Top Undergraduate Fulbright Producers

The Chronicle of Higher Education

College of the Holy Cross is once again a top producer of Fulbright students, according to a recent report compiled by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Though Holy Cross may be small, it packs a punch: 14 students have been awarded Fulbright grants this year from 55 applicants.

Holy Cross was fourth on the list of undergraduate institutions, joined in the top five by fellow New England institutions Bates College, Williams College, Bowdoin College and Amherst College.

Sponsored by the U.S. State Department, the Fulbright Program is widely recognized as the most prestigious international exchange program in the world. Since 2005, the College has produced a total of 93 Fulbright scholars, and has consistently been among the nation's top producers of Fulbright students at the undergraduate level according to data submitted by the Institute of International Education.

Holy Cross is also well on its way to the top of the list next year, with 69 applicants and 16 semi-finalists for 2018-19.
