According to data submitted by the Institute of International Education, the College of the Holy Cross ranks as one of the top undergraduate producers of the Fulbright Scholarship during the 2016-2017 academic year. 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.

A recent report compiled by The Chronicle of Higher Education noted that Holy Cross produced seven Fulbright Scholars out of 58 applicants. Since 2005, the College has received a total of 79 Fulbrights, and has consistently been among the nation’s top producers of Fulbright students at the undergraduate level.

“The Distinguished Fellowships Office is very proud that Holy Cross consistently ranks in the top 10 or 15 colleges in the category of ‘bachelor’s institutions,’ which are schools that primarily serve undergraduates,” said Anthony Cashman, director of  the Office of Distinguished Fellowships and Graduate Studies. “We know that our students are among the best in the country, and they perform brilliantly during their Fulbright Scholarships. For the 2017-18 competition, we have another 22 semi-finalists who are awaiting notification, so we are hoping to add to our sizable total of Fulbright recipients over the past decade.”
