For the third time in its short history, Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering has been placed on The Chronicle of Higher Education's list of Top Producers of U.S. Fulbright Students, in the specialized institution category. Since 2006 Olin College has been awarded a total of eight Fulbright fellowships, bringing its success rate to 36%, one of the highest among schools in its classification category.
"We are very proud to have had such fantastic Fulbright success rates at Olin," said Caitrin Lynch, associate professor of anthropology and faculty advisor to Olin's program. "Since we first began working with Fulbright applicants in 2005, we have developed a solid Fulbright Preparatory Program that brings together a faculty-staff team to help students at all stages of the process. We feel the key to our success is that our students see the value of this opportunity and commit themselves early on to doing the work needed to receive the award. Our students' passions, insights, experiences and academic excellence all combine to make them wonderful Fulbright candidates."
Sponsored by the United States Department of State, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers fellowships for graduating seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists from the United States to study abroad for one academic year. It is the largest international exchange program in the U.S. The Fulbright Program supports approximately 1,700 U.S. citizens who engage in study, research, or teaching assistantships abroad via the U.S. Student Program. Soon it will connect researchers in the United States, Canada, and Latin America in an effort to advance ideas to resolve issues of global concern.
