Fourteen young alumni and graduate students will travel to nine countries in the coming year as part of the 2018 Fulbright US Student Program.

As recipients of the flagship international exchange program sponsored by the US government, the winners will carry out research or coursework of their own design or be placed as native speakers in schools overseas to supplement language instruction as part of the English Teaching Assistant Programs.

The eleven bachelor’s and master’s level recipients were selected from forty-five Emory applicants, of which twenty-one were named semifinalists. Three PhD students from Laney Graduate School received research awards.

“This year’s cohort of Fulbright applicants at the bachelor’s and master’s level was the largest we’ve ever had, and also included the highest number of finalists selected for the award,” says Megan Friddle, director of Emory’s National Scholarships and Fellowships Program.

“The students and alumni selected for the Fulbright program provide a wonderful illustration of Emory’s broad academic strengths, as well as the campus culture of servant leadership,” she adds.
