WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 2022 — The U.S. Department of State, in collaboration with the Institute of International Education (IIE), has released lists of more than 125 U.S. higher education institutions that sent the most Fulbright U.S. Students and U.S. Scholars abroad in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Topping this year’s lists of Research, Master’s, Bachelor’s, and Special-focus four-year institutions that sent the most Fulbright U.S. students abroad are Brown University (R.I.), University of North Georgia (G.A.), CUNY Hunter College (N.Y.), Bowdoin College (M.E.), and the California Institute of the Arts (C.A.).

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (I.L.), the State University of New York at New Paltz (N.Y.), and Middlebury College (V.T.) sent the most Fulbright U.S. Scholars in the Research, Master’s, and Bachelor’s degree categories.

Fulbright Students are recent college graduates, graduate students, and early career professionals. In comparison, Fulbright Scholars are faculty, researchers, administrators, and established professionals.

“We congratulate the colleges and universities we are honoring as 2021-2022 Fulbright Top Producing Institutions and are especially delighted to celebrate the institutions recognized as Fulbright Top Producers for the first time. These institutions reflect the geographic and institutional diversity of higher education in the United States, and include Minority-Serving Institutions,” said Ethan Rosenzweig, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Academic Programs in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. “We thank the leadership of these institutions for supporting their faculty advisors and administrators, who are instrumental in guiding their students through the Fulbright application process. We also commend their support for their faculty and administrators who pursue Fulbright awards. Consequently, these institutions benefit from new, global perspectives and new international collaborations, positively impacting local and global communities. As a result, Fulbright U.S. Scholars and Fulbright U.S. Students have life-changing experiences that continue to pay dividends both professionally and personally throughout their careers.”

The Fulbright Program is a United States Cultural Exchange Program to improve intercultural relations between the American people and other countries through exchanging persons, knowledge, and skills. Competitively-selected American citizens, including students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists, and artists, may receive grants to study, conduct research, teach, or exercise their talents abroad. Likewise, citizens of other countries may qualify to do the same in the United States.
