F&M Again Recognized as Top Producer of Fulbright Students

For the fourth consecutive year, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program recognizes Franklin & Marshall College among the top producing institutions.

The College has received this honor for six of the past seven years: 2014-15, 2015-16, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, and now 2020-21.

“It's been so rewarding to watch the fellowships program grow at F&M over the last decade, and nowhere can we see that more vividly than in our steady climb up the Fulbright top producer list,” said Monica Cable, director of fellowships.

Among baccalaureate institutions, F&M is tied for the sixth-place ranking with 11 Fulbrights awarded. All eleven F&M recipients have been selected for Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships:

  • Paige Alexander ’20, ETA Taiwan

  • Hannah Fink ’20, ETA Germany

  • Jaime Helm ’20, ETA Germany

  • Julia Kopala ’20, ETA Taiwan

  • Emma Lane ’20, ETA Moldova

  • Eliot List ’19, ETA Colombia

  • Kate Meyers ’19, ETA Poland

  • Kathleen Miao ’20, ETA Taiwan

  • Sarah Silverstein ’19, ETA Spain

  • Griffin Sneath ’20, ETA Germany

  • Harmony Zhao ’20, ETA Taiwan

The top-producer list is based on Fulbright awards that F&M students and alumni (young professionals with a bachelor’s degree) received the previous academic year. In response to COVID-19 program adaptations, the 2020-2021 Top Producing data reflects the total number of awards offered, rather than the number of awards accepted, the standard in past years.
