Top Fulbright Producer—Again!

For the sixth time in 10 years, Lewis & Clark has been named one of the top producers of Fulbright award winners in the country, according to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. With four Fulbright grants in 2022– 23, Lewis & Clark is in the Top 40 baccalaureate producers of Fulbrights in the nation and the only top producer in Oregon.

“I see my best students supported by Fulbright to work in countries around the globe,” says Bruce Suttmeier, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and associate professor of Japanese. “These students have gone to work at the Gates Foundation in vaccine research, at leading nonprofits, and at schools from Vietnam to South America. I’m deeply grateful to Fulbright for providing the opportunities for these students to become the kind of globally informed leaders who can tackle the challenges that confront our world.”

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Program is the government’s flagship international educational exchange program and provides grants to study, teach English, and conduct research in more than 140 countries.
