Pitzer College Named Top Fulbright Producer in 2023–24

The Fulbright logo of white lines criss-crossing through a blue circle is overlayed on a blue badge with a gray outline and a dark burgundy ribbon cutting through the middle of the badge and above the circle. White text on the logo reads Fulbright Top Producer U.S. Student Program 2023 2024.

Pitzer College has been chosen as one of the top producers of students for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program in 2023–24, according to an announcement earlier this week from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international academic exchange program. Since 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 400,000 talented and accomplished students, scholars, teachers, artists, and professionals of all backgrounds with the opportunity to study, teach, and conduct research abroad.

During their grants, Fulbright recipients live with people from their host country, which creates an opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation of other viewpoints, beliefs, and cultural perspectives.

Top-producing schools are divided into two categories: those with the most Fulbright scholars (which refers to faculty members or other professionals) and those with the most Fulbright students (which applies to undergraduates).

This marks the 15th consecutive year that Pitzer has been recognized for this achievement. Professor Nigel Boyle oversees Pitzer’s Fulbright program. With nine students awarded for 2023–2024, Pitzer places among the top 13 institutions in the baccalaureate category.

For Pitzer President Strom C. Thacker, who served as a Fulbright scholar in Mexico, the College’s continuing success as a top producer will enhance its global reputation.

“I am thrilled to see Pitzer recognized once again this year as a top producer of Fulbright recipients,” he said. “I’m honored by this recognition of our College’s leadership in this realm and so proud of our brilliant students, and the outstanding faculty and staff who support them. They will continue to advance Pitzer’s mission and values and, with this support, will be able to make an even bigger difference in the world.”
