The College of the Holy Cross is once again among the liberal arts colleges with the highest number of Fulbrights awarded to its graduating class, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education, which published its annual “Top Producers of U.S. Fulbright Students by Type of Institution, 2013-14” on Oct. 28.

With  more than  64 applicants applying for the Fulbright grants, the College tied for 4th place with 14 applicants receiving the award.  This year’s recipients are headed to Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Russia, Spain, Sri Lanka and Turkey.

Since 2003, Holy Cross has received a total of 68 Fulbrights, and has consistently been among the nation’s top producers of Fulbright students at the undergraduate level. The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, is widely recognized as the most prestigious international exchange program in the world. The highly competitive grants are awarded on the basis of academic merit and professional promise.

Other liberal arts colleges with 10 or more Fulbrights this year are Pitzer College (22), Smith College (21), Pomona College (16), Oberlin College (16), Williams College (14), Occidental College (11), and Vassar College (11).
