Penn State University: Penn State named a top producer of Fulbright Scholars for 10th year running

Penn State has once again been recognized as a top U.S. producer of faculty Fulbright Scholars by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, one of 18 universities to receive such recognition this year. Eight Penn State faculty received Fulbright Program awards for 2021-22, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education, who published the annual list of the top-producing institutions earlier this week.

This year, according to the Fulbright Program, the 2021-22 Top Producing data reflects the total number of awards offered, rather than the number of awards accepted. Information on the 2021-22 scholars will be available soon.

Penn State has made the Top Producers list for the past 10 years and ranked No. 1 in the country in 2019-20.

“We are proud of the high-quality, high-impact work of our Fulbright scholars,” said Roger Brindley, vice provost for Global. “Fulbrighters create global connections with institutions around the world and bring their knowledge and experiences back to enrich Penn State.”

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. The program offers Penn State faculty members, staff and administrators opportunities to conduct advanced research, teach, or do both, and attend seminars abroad. The program also affords recipients the opportunity to interact with, and make an impact on, their host communities during their Fulbright tenure.
