When it comes to prestigious scholarships and awards, Richmond knows a thing or two — or 10, in this case. 

The Fulbright program is competitive (sidenote: we surpassed our own record last year) and now we’re being named as one of the country’s top producers of Fulbright awards for both scholars and students. That’s because in the past academic year, we’ve had two scholars and eight students be named into the exclusive Fulbright club.

“Our Fulbright scholars are top researchers and educators in their fields,” President Crutcher said. “These prestigious honors allow them to share their expertise with others around the world, and bring their global perspectives to campus.”
