ATHENS, Ohio (Feb. 27, 2019) – Ohio University is among the top 25 public institutions in the United States in Fulbright scholars, Chronicle of Higher Education [JB: see text of Chronicle article below] reported recently.
Ten Ohio University students received 2018-19 Fulbright Awards in May 2018. That’s tied for 20th among public research institutions and tied for 40th among research institutions nationwide, tied with George Washington University, Penn State University, Indiana University, Temple University and Tufts University. The total is more than any other institution in Ohio.
“Ohio University students and alumni strive to make a difference in the world, and the Fulbright Award program provides a gateway to that service,” Ohio University President M. Duane Nellis said. “OHIO affords its students the opportunities to pursue their passions and visions academically and on the world stage, and it’s an honor for the University to be among the nation’s leaders in earning Fulbright Award recognition.”
Ohio University students Laura Gilbert, Sydney Pence, Mailé Nguyen, Reiya Bhat, Francisco Cintron, Sadie Lamparyk, Seph Callaway III, Devon Swanson, Madeline Shaw and Karie Whitman were selected as recipients for the prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program Award, the largest U.S. educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. They are now representing Ohio University in Brazil, Switzerland, South Korea, Spain, Malaysia, and Madagascar.
The prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program Award is the largest U.S. educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The program offers research, study and teaching opportunities in more than 140 countries for graduating seniors and graduate students.
A total of 212 institutions, public and private, had Fulbright students for 2018-2019. A total of 1,336 grants were awarded.

Correction (2/14/2019, 2:33 p.m.): The University of Nebraska at Lincoln was erroneously omitted from the original version of this table, even though it had six Fulbright scholars. The institution has been added among top producers of Fulbright scholars in the category of research universities.
Correction (2/26/2019, 3:20 p.m.): The original version of this table listed North Carolina State University as having seven Fulbright scholars in 2018-19. It had eight. That figure and the university's ranking among research institutions have been corrected.
