Congratulations on being a top producing Fulbright Student institution for this academic year.

The U.S. Department of State has also issued the following statement regarding top producing Fulbright institutions. Please feel free to distribute and use accordingly:
“On behalf of the U.S. Department of State, congratulations to all of the Fulbright top producing schools this year. Both President Obama and Secretary Clinton have made clear that international educational exchange is a critical element of the U.S. international engagement and the Fulbright Program is consistent with this “smart power” approach. Securing a place as a Fulbright top producing school is a testament to the quality of the applications a school’s students and faculty submit, and to the efforts of its Fulbright Program Adviser/Fulbright Campus Representative to emphasize the legacy and importance of a Fulbright experience.” –Alina L. Romanowski, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Academic Programs, U.S. Department of State
