Georgetown University students awarded record number of Fulbright scholarships
Twenty Georgetown University students and recent alumni received Fulbright awards for the 2011-2012 academic year to study in 16 different countries. Last year, the university had 16 winners.
Sponsored by the United States government, the Fulbright Program is an international educational exchange program aimed at promoting mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries, and supports winners traveling abroad to conduct research, study and teach in a variety of fields.
“We are deeply honored and very proud to have a record number of Fulbright awardees this year," said Georgetown President John J. DeGioia. “The commitment to academic excellence and global understanding demonstrated by each of our grantees exemplifies the values of our university community."
