Undergraduate Academic Affairs

The University of Washington made the Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of the Fulbright top producing institutions. A total of 14 students received Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards for the academic year 2023-24, seven undergraduates or recent graduates and seven graduate-level students. Three UW faculty were named Fulbright scholars.

The scholarship program is the largest U.S. international exchange opportunity for students to pursue graduate study, advanced research and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide. The UW awardees will join 2,000 students and recent graduates from around the country to study and teach abroad.
