The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is an international education exchange program sponsored by the United States government. The Fulbright program awards grants for individually designed study, research and teaching opportunities in over 140 countries to recent graduates and graduate students with the goals of promoting understanding between people in the United States and people in other countries. New College is a major source of Fulbright awards with the largest amount of Fulbright scholars per capita, beating top colleges like Harvard and Yale. Since its founding in 1960, more than 70 New College students have received the award, traveling to over 33 countries including Germany, Sweden, South Africa and Taiwan.
