UC Davis is a Top Producer of Fulbright Students in 2022-23

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs named UC Davis a Fulbright Top Producing Institution for U.S. Students. This recognition is given to the U.S. colleges and universities that received the highest number of applicants selected for the 2022-23 Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Eleven UC Davis students were selected for Fulbright awards for the 2022-23 academic year.

It is an honor to be recognized as a top producing institution. The Fulbright Program provides critical cultural learning and exchange opportunities that inspire and promote mutual appreciation and understanding,“ said Joanna Regulska, Vice Provost and Dean of Global Affairs. “UC Davis students create lifelong connections that benefit them and their communities academically, professionally and personally.”
