Fulbright Scholar Recipients:

Each year, tens of thousands of students and young professionals apply to the Fulbright Program which gives funding for international travel and educational opportunities. Of these applicants, less than two thousand are chosen to receive the Fulbright Scholarship. Earlier this year, Rollins College was named the number one producer of Fulbright scholars meaning that of the 81 master’s institutions with students receiving Fulbright Scholarships, Rollins has produced the largest number of recipients.

This year a record number of thirty four students applied for the scholarship and fifteen of them found out in late January that their applications were forwarded to the host country, making them finalists for this prestigious award. Below are the recipients that have thus far received notification of their Fulbright award. Congratulations again to all who applied. More recipients will be trickling in soon so don't forget to check back with our website!
