For the fourth time in five years, the University of Massachusetts Amherst has been named a “Top Producing Institution” of Fulbright student awards among research colleges and universities. 

The 2018-19 rankings from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs appear in the Chronicle of Higher Education. With 13 students receiving scholarships in the distinguished competition, UMass Amherst tied with Dartmouth College and Duke University in the 15th position.

UMass Amherst received the same distinction in the Fulbright Student Program for three consecutive years beginning with the 2014-15 rankings. And last year, UMass Amherst was named a top producing institution in the Fulbright Scholars category, with seven faculty members given awards to teach or conduct research on four continents.
