UT’s Fulbright Student Production Still Ranks Among Top in U.S.

AUSTIN, Texas — For the 11th consecutive year, The University of Texas at Austin is one of the top U.S. colleges and universities that produced the most 2019-2020 Fulbright U.S. students, ranking higher than any other research institution in Texas.

Announced by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), the Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. The Chronicle of Higher Education publishes the lists annually.

UT ranked as a top producer for both student and scholar awards, with 13 UT students and three scholars receiving Fulbright awards for academic year 2019-2020.

“Our consistent ranking as a top producer of Fulbright U.S. students demonstrates the steadfast commitment of our university, students and alumni to global education and engagement,” said Sonia Feigenbaum, senior vice provost for global engagement and chief international officer. “I am confident the 2019-2020 awardees will further the mission of Fulbright to promote education through cross-cultural exchange and serve as exemplary ambassadors for The University of Texas at Austin and the United States.”
