On February 21, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Institute of International Education celebrated the colleges and universities that were named as Fulbright Top Producing Institutions for 2022-2023 at a reception in Washington, D.C.
Marianne Craven, Managing Director of Academic Programs at U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, recognized more than 170 higher education institutions from across the United States that have the highest number of accepted applicants to the Fulbright U.S. Student and Fulbright U.S. Scholar Programs for 2022-2023. The list of Fulbright Top Producing Institutions highlights the Fulbright Program’s strong institutional diversity and impact on American communities.
The colleges and universities were represented by presidents, chancellors, senior international officers, Fulbright Program Advisers, Fulbright Scholar Liaisons, and other representatives who have helped to ensure the institutions’ success in engaging with the Fulbright Program.
Managing Director Craven expressed her appreciation to those in attendance by saying, “As we celebrate the achievements of the institutions being recognized, we want to express our gratitude to the many individuals on campuses across the United States who work to make Fulbright opportunities known and accessible to faculty, students, and administrators. You support the Fulbright Program and its goals every day. We commend the college and university presidents, chancellors, provosts, deans, and other campus leaders, who promote the Fulbright Program at your institutions. Your leadership shows an understanding of Fulbright’s value in advancing your institutional goals for global engagement, as well as supporting our country’s national interest.”
Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board Chair Donna Brazile represented the Board and congratulated attendees. Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) President Jewell Green Winn, Senior International Officer at Tennessee State University, and AIEA President-Elect Jeet Joshee, Chief International Officer at California State University, Long Beach were also in attendance, as well as many leaders in international education who gathered in Washington, DC for the annual AIEA Conference.
