Fulbright Scholars Program

LMU has been a top producer of U.S. Fulbright fellows for many years. As of 2019, LMU students and alumni have won more than 52 U.S. Fulbright student fellowships since 1991.

Roughly 1,900 student grants are awarded annually based on applicants’ academic merit and leadership potential. Since its establishment in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the program has given more than 380,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists and others the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. It operates today in more than 160 countries.
