The College of the Holy Cross is once again among the colleges producing the highest number of Fulbright students, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education, which published its annual “Top Producers of Fulbright U.S. Scholars and Students” for the 2018-19 academic year on Feb. 10.

This year’s recipients are headed to Latvia, Spain, Malaysia and Russia.

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 or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential.

Each year approximately 1,900 grants are awarded through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, which offers opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Since the program’s inception in 1946, more than 360,000 participants, throughout more than 160 countries worldwide, have had the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

At Holy Cross, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program application process is supported by the Office of Distinguished Fellowships and Graduate Studies. Since 2005, the College has produced a total of 98 Fulbright scholars, and has consistently been among the nation’s top producers of Fulbright students at the undergraduate level according to data submitted by the Institute of International Education.

“I am very proud that Holy Cross put forward a school record 69 applicants for the Fulbright last year, exceeding the number submitted by many research universities,” says Anthony B. Cashman, director of Distinguished Fellowships and Graduate Studies at the College. “The Fulbright is an unforgettable journey for the recipients, but even the students who do not receive the grant gain valuable skills and experiences such as application writing, interview practice, and one-on-one faculty mentoring.”

Holy Cross Fulbright recipients this year:

Patricia Corey ’18, Major: Russian (Latvia)

Joshua DeYoung ’18, Major: Political Science (Spain)

Isabel Fitzpatrick ’18, Major: Psychology (Spain)

Martina Umunna ’18, Major: History (Malaysia)

Jacob Wronski ’18, Major: Political Science (Russia)
