Tiny college that could
It's the case of a tiny college that could. New College of Florida, a relatively small campus with only 800 students, has produced six Fulbright scholars this year alone. This makes the small university the leader in an international academic program that awards scholarships to 1,500 applicants per year.
The New College of Florida has a lot to crow about. According to the Washington Post, the college has more Fulbright scholars per capita in past years than Harvard or Yale.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The New College of Florida has a lot to crow about. According to the Washington Post, the college has more Fulbright scholars per capita in past years than Harvard or Yale. A comprehensive list published last year by the Chronicle of Higher Education shows that Northwestern University produced the most Fulbright students in 2009-10 among research institutions, with 32. George Washington University was not far behind, with 23. No other D.C.-area university made the list. Only one master's-level institution, College of Notre Dame of Maryland, ranked with two Fulbrights. The Fulbright Program, including the Fulbright-Hays Program, is a program of grants for international educational exchange for scholars, educators, graduate students and professionals, founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946. The Fulbright Program is one of the most prestigious awards programs worldwide, operating in over 155 countries. Forty Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes (including one in 2009 Oliver Williamson). As of 2010, 300,000 students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists have participated in the program since it began. According to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.org, The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs sponsors the Fulbright Program from an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress. Additional direct and in-kind support comes from partner governments, foundations, corporations, and host institutions both in and outside the U.S.
