The University of Redlands recognized nationally for academic achievements through Fulbright and Study Abroad programs
REDLANDS, Dec. 14, 2012—The University of Redlands recently received national kudos for its achievements by students who pursue and excel at global academic opportunities while enrolled as undergraduates at the university. The accolades were noted by the higher education industry’s best known industry publications, the Chronicle of Higher Education and the online Inside Higher Ed magazine.
The Chronicle of Higher Education named the University in its list of Top Fulbright Producers among masters-granting universities for 2012-13. Fulbright awards are the highest and most competitive awards for overseas research or teaching given by the federal government to approximately 1,500 graduating seniors annually. Each year, only 11 percent of all Fulbright awards are given to undergraduate students. The University of Redlands had three student Fulbright scholars from the College of Arts and Sciences this past year, and has sent students abroad on such scholarships each of the past five years, bringing the university total to 12 in as many years.
In addition, the University of Redlands is among the top 10 masters-granting universities in the U.S. with the highest undergraduate participation rates in Study Abroad programs for 2012-11, according to a list published by Inside Higher Ed. According to the publication, the University is among 12 masters-level schools that send 50 percent or more of their students abroad to study as undergraduates.
