New York University is among the top 10 nation-wide in the selection of Fulbright students this year, the U.S. State Department program announced today.

NYU finished 7th in the number of students chosen for Fulbright scholarships.

In the 2022-23 academic year, a total of 25 NYU students and alumni were chosen, making the university a “Top Producing Institution” for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for seven consecutive years. Top-producing institutions among research universities are those who have had at least 10 grantees selected for the Fulbright program.

"This achievement is a testament to your institution's deep commitment to international exchange and to building lasting connections between the people of the United States and the people of other countries," U.S. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken wrote in a letter to NYU President Andrew Hamilton congratulating the university. "New York University’s place among the Fulbright Program’s 2022-2023 Top Producing Institutions clearly demonstrates your dedication to preparing Americans to thrive in the global economy and serve as engaged citizens."

“Thanks to the visionary leadership of these institutions, administrators, and advisors, a new generation of Fulbrighters—changemakers, as I like to say—will catalyze lasting impact on their campus, in their communities, and around the world,” added Lee Satterfield, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs. 

The NYU student Fulbright selections included a total of 13 undergraduates and 12 graduate students who were either enrolled at the university or recent alumni at the time of their selection. The following NYU schools and programs were represented among the grantees: the College of Arts and Science, the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, the Graduate School of Arts and Science, Liberal Studies, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and the Tisch School of the Arts as well as NYU’s Shanghai and Abu Dhabi campuses.

Their study, research and English Teaching Assistantships took these students and scholars to 20 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Côte d’Ivoire, Estonia, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Jamaica, the Philippines, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey. 

The NYU Office of Global Awards is currently recruiting students and recent alumni to apply for the 2023-24 Fulbright cycle.  To learn more, please contact
