Rutgers Once Again a Top-Producing Fulbright School Nationally
For the sixth consecutive year Rutgers University found itself among the most successful research institutions in the U.S. when the results of the competition for the 2014-15 Fulbright Student Grants were announced recently in the Chronicle of Higher Education. With 19 recipients, Rutgers was also ranked in the top 10 of these top-producing schools for the second year in a row. The other members of the “best of the best” included Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Penn, Brown, Chicago, Northwestern, Michigan and California-Berkeley.
“One benchmark by which to measure a university is the company it keeps when its students succeed in winning national fellowships,” said Arthur D. Casciato, director of the Rutgers Office of Distinguished Fellowships, “and it is difficult to imagine a more prestigious group than the one that surrounds Rutgers in this year’s Top Producing Fulbright Schools.”
The 19 Rutgers students and alumni recognized by the Fulbright U.S. Student Program will represent the State University of New Jersey in 15 countries: Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. Fulbright U.S. Student Grants allow recipients to pursue graduate study, independent research or the teaching of English.
