PLU named top producer of Fulbright by The Chronicle of Higher Education

Pacific Lutheran University was named as a top producer of U.S. Fulbright students for 2012-13 as a master’s institution by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

This past year, four PLU students were awarded Fulbright Student Fellowships.

That makes 91 PLU student Fulbright recipients since 1975. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright program was established in 1946 by the U.S. Congress to “enable the government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of other countries.”

It is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.
