Press Release

Fulbright Program featured in Chronicle of Higher Education

The October 20, 2006 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education contains a special feature on the Fulbright Program. The article highlights the Fulbright Program's new critical languages emphasis, and new opportunities that are available to Fulbright Students through the Fulbright Critical Language Enhancement Awards. It also includes the lists of "Top Producing" schools - those campuses in each Carnegie Classification that had the highest number of students who received Fulbright grants this year.

Please visit the Chronicle of Higher Education's website (www.chronicle.com) to see the Fulbright feature and "top producing campus" listings:

The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. You can find out more about the Fulbright Program at www.fulbrightonline.org, or on the State Department website, at http://exchanges.state.gov/education/fulbright/. To find out details on your campus's involvement with the Fulbright Program, contact Tony Claudino at IIE (tclaudino@iie.org).

Congratulations to all those member campuses whose students received Fulbright grants this year, and especially to those listed in this year's top producing lists. We would like to thank the Fulbright Program Advisors for their successful advising of their students, and also those campuses who are hosting Foreign Fulbright Students this year. Your participation in the Fulbright Program -- at all levels -- is very important to the success of the program.
