Syracuse University has been included on the list of U.S. colleges and universities (doctoral institutions) that produced the most 2020-21 Fulbright U.S. students. The announcement is made annually by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), the government’s flagship international educational exchange program. The list appeared in the Feb. 15 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education.
“The entire Syracuse University community shares my pride in our Fulbright scholars and the faculty and staff who work together to support them through the application process. Their success shows the world that Syracuse University is a place for students whose ambition to make an impact and global perspective set them apart as leaders and scholars,” says Chancellor Kent Syverud.
Thirteen Syracuse University alumni were awarded Fulbright awards in the 2020-21 application cycle. The University’s Fulbright applications are facilitated through the Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising (CFSA). “This distinction was earned by our extraordinary students and alumni, and was facilitated by the University’s commitment to preparing them to be agents of positive change in the world,” says CFSA Director Jolynn Parker. “It is truly a privilege to work with our Fulbright applicants because they have such vision and dedication.”
