Twenty-four Northwestern students and alumni comprise the newest class of globe-trotting scholars and winners of 2017-18 Fulbright U.S. Student Program — one of the most widely recognized and respected international exchange programs in the world.
The flagship international educational exchange program of the U.S. government, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants to teach, conduct research, study or participate in specialized internships.
For the past decade, Northwestern has ranked among the top Fulbright-producing research institutions in the country. The University is one of only a handful of universities to appear on every “top producing” Fulbright U.S. Student Program list published by the Chronicle of Higher Education since 2005.
The Fulbright competition is administered at Northwestern through the Office of Fellowships. The Northwestern campus application deadline is always early September for awards beginning almost a year later. Graduating seniors, alumni, and graduate students with U.S. passports are eligible to apply through Northwestern.
