Massachusetts College of Art and Design is proud to be included on the list of U.S. colleges and universities that produced the most 2017-2018 Fulbright U.S. Students recently announced by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program.
Tova Katzman, (BFA, 2015, Photography) received a Fulbright award to Panama for academic year 2017-2018. This ranks MassArt in the top 10 of special focus 4-year institutions. This is the third time MassArt has been a Top Producer for the U.S. Student Program. Additionally, MassArt has been a Top Producer for the U.S. Scholars program three times. The Fulbright competition is administered at MassArt through Amy Holland, Study Abroad Adviser and Fulbright Program Adviser, based in the International Education Center.
Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 380,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential—with the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Over 1,900 U.S. students, artists and young professionals in more than 100 different fields of study are offered Fulbright Program grants to study, teach English, and conduct research abroad each year. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program operates in over 140 countries throughout the world.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is a program of the U.S. Department of State, funded by an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress to the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education.
The Fulbright Program also awards grants to U.S. scholars, teachers and faculty to conduct research and teach overseas. In addition, some 4,000 foreign Fulbright students and scholars come to the United States annually to study, lecture, conduct research and teach foreign languages.
