2020-2021 Top Producing Institutions of Fulbright U.S. Scholars

The February 15th online edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education includes the lists of Fulbright “Top Producing” schools – those institutions in each Carnegie Classification that had the highest number of students and scholars who were offered Fulbright awards this year. In response to COVID-19 Program adaptations, the 2020-2021 Top Producing data reflects the total number of awards offered, rather than the number of awards accepted as has been the criteria in past years.

Congratulations to all those institutions whose scholars received Fulbright awards this year and especially to those listed in this year’s “Top Producing” lists. We would like to thank Fulbright Scholar Liaisons for their efforts to promote the Fulbright Program on their campuses.
