Georgetown one of the top producers of Fulbright students
The Chronicle of Higher Education just released its annual list of the top U.S. producers of Fulbright students, and for the second year in a row, Georgetown made the cut!
With 10 current students and four recent alumni winning Fulbright scholarships, Georgetown won a spot on the list of U.S. research universities with the most Fulbright students. The number of Georgetown-affiliated students winning Fulbrights is a little lower than it was in 2008, when 15 current students and 3 alumni were awarded scholarships.
Things look pretty good, though, when you consider Georgetown’s Fulbright acceptance rate. With 36 students applying and 10 being granted scholarships, Georgetown’s acceptance rate is 27.8 percent, the 17th highest of the 39 research universities listed.
