New York University is among the top 20 nation-wide in the selection of Fulbright students this year, the U.S. State Department program announced today.
In the 2019-20 academic year, 21 NYU students were chosen, making the university a “Top Producing Institution” for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the fourth year in a row.
NYU finished 12th, tied with Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan, in the number of students chosen for Fulbright scholarships.
“We are delighted to see that the colleges and universities we are honoring as 2019-2020 Fulbright top producing institutions reflect the geographic and institutional diversity of higher education in the United States,” said Marie Royce, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs. “We are committed to the Fulbright Program’s goals of creating lasting professional and personal connections by sending passionate and accomplished U.S. students of all backgrounds to study, research, or teach English in communities throughout the world. These Fulbrighters serve as citizen ambassadors for the United States in their host communities, and we will benefit from the skills, knowledge, and global connections they build on their exchanges long after they return home.”
The student Fulbright selections included nine undergraduates and 12 graduate students. They were enrolled in the following NYU schools and programs: the College of Arts and Science, the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, the Graduate School of Arts and Science, the School of Global Public Health, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, the Stern School of Business, and the Tisch School of the Arts as well as NYU’s Shanghai Campus.
Their study and research took these students and scholars to nearly 20 countries: Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Ivory Coast, Laos, the Philippines, Russia, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, and South Africa.
Top-producing institutions among research universities are those who have had at least 10 students selected for the Fulbright program.
