F&M Ranks High Among Fulbright Top Producers

Franklin & Marshall College has again been recognized by Fulbright, the U.S. government's flagship international educational exchange program.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program named F&M as a top-producing institution. The College has received this honor for eight of the past nine years: 2014-15, 2015-16, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22, and now 2022-23.

Of the nine Fulbrights awarded last year, eight were chosen for English Teaching Assistantships and one for a study/research partnership.

F&M is tied for 7th place among baccalaureate institutions with a total of nine awards offered. The College was just one of two undergraduate institutions in Pennsylvania named to the list.

The top-producer designation is based on Fulbright awards that F&M students and alumni received the previous academic year.

Over the past decade, Fulbright success has blossomed at F&M. A dedicated Office of Fellowships helps students and alumni navigate the complex application process.

The cohort of Fulbright students for the 2022-23 academic year will be announced in late spring.
