Fulbright awards

Princeton is a top producer of Fulbright awards for postgraduate study abroad in 2005-06.

Among U.S. research universities (as classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching), Princeton ties for ninth place with 16 alumni winning Fulbrights this year. The other schools with 16 awards are Brown, Duke and Penn.

Leading the category are: the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor with 26; Harvard with 25; Yale with 24; Columbia and the University of California-Berkeley with 23 each; Stanford with 19; the University of Wisconsin-Madison with 18; and Johns Hopkins with 17.

The Fulbright program was established in 1946 to demonstrate U.S. commitment to democratic values worldwide. It is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. The program operates in more than 140 countries and awards approximately 4,500 new grants each year, including funding for roughly 1,100 American students to study or conduct research abroad.

The countries in which Princeton award winners planned to study this year include Argentina, Germany, Greece, Morocco, Hong Kong, Syria and Brazil.
