Fulbright Starts Efforts to Help Alumni Keep Global Ties

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The October 28 online edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education includes a feature story on the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ new efforts to help 325,000 Fulbright alumni around the world improve their job prospects by capitalizing on their Fulbright experiences. The article profiles Colleen R. O'Neal, a Fulbright U.S. Scholar who received a fellowship to study the stresses faced by the 40,000 or so refugee children from Burma and elsewhere. O'Neal continues to work with refugees and credits the Fulbright program for altering the trajectory of her academic and professional life.
The article is a part of an annual feature that lists the "Top Producing" schools with the highest numbers of student and scholar U.S Fulbright recipients during the current year.  The Chronicle coverage also includes tables on the top destinations for U.S. Fulbright Awardees and top countries and territories sending the most Fulbright Scholars to the United States.
The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education, develops the lists of top-producing colleges and universities each year to highlight the wide range of institutions that have been particularly successful in helping their students to apply, and successfully compete, for Fulbright Student Program awards, and whose faculty have received Fulbright Scholar awards.  IIE would like to congratulate all the students and faculty members who have received Fulbright awards this year, as well as the Fulbright Program Advisers and others on campus who are so instrumental in encouraging and supporting these successful Fulbright applicants.
