The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has announced Dickinson College is once again a Top Producer of Fulbright U.S. Students. The Fulbright Program is the world’s largest and most diverse international educational exchange program, and this recognition is given to U.S. colleges and universities receiving the highest number of applicants selected from the 2022-23 Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Six Dickinson students were selected for Fulbright awards in this most recent cycle. 

“We are tremendously proud of all of our Fulbright recipients,” says Dickinson President John E. Jones III ’77 P’11. “As a longstanding top producer of Fulbright U.S. students, this recognition underscores Dickinson’s leadership in global study and international engagement and our commitment to building better understanding across borders.” 

Since 2010-11, Dickinson has been named a top Fulbright-producing college nine times, with more than 60 Fulbright scholarships awarded to graduating seniors and Dickinson alumni. Additionally, Dickinson’s Fulbright Program advisory team learned recently that a total of six students are semifinalists for the 2023-24 program. Dickinsonians are supported throughout the application process by a team of advisors coordinated through the Office of the Dean & Director of Internships and Fellowships. The 2022-23 advisors included Amity Fox, dean & director of internships and fellowships; Donna Bickford, former director of the Women’s & Gender Resource Center; Liz Lewis, associate professor of educational studies; and Amy Steinbugler, associate professor of sociology.  

“On behalf of President Biden and Secretary of State Blinken, congratulations to the colleges and universities recognized as 2022-23 Fulbright Top Producing Institutions, and to all the applicants who were selected for the Fulbright Program this year,” says Lee Satterfield, assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs. “Thanks to the visionary leadership of these institutions, administrators and advisors, a new generation of Fulbrighters—changemakers, as I like to say—will catalyze lasting impact on their campus, in their communities and around the world.” 

The Fulbright Program was established more than 75 years ago to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Fulbright alumni work to make a positive impact on their communities, sectors and the world. They have included 41 heads of government, 62 Nobel Laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners, 78 MacArthur Fellows and countless leaders and changemakers who carry forward the Fulbright mission of enhancing mutual understanding.
