The Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has named UNC-Chapel Hill a top-producing institution of Fulbright U.S. students. This recognition is given to the U.S. colleges and universities with the highest number of applicants selected for the 2022-23 Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

Carolina is a longtime top producer of Fulbright awardees. In the 2022-23 cycle, 16 Tar Heels were selected for the award. Recent graduates and current graduate students are pursuing year-long graduate studies, research or English teaching in more than 160 countries.

Fulbright is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. Among the largest and most diverse exchange programs in the world, Fulbright was established over 75 years ago to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

Fulbright alumni work to make a positive impact on their communities, sectors and the world and have included 41 heads of state or government, 62 Nobel Laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners and 78 MacArthur Fellows.
