UCSF has been recognized as a top producer for this year’s Fulbright Program for both students and scholars, a unique distinction among institutions.
Three scholars and two students from the University were awarded grants to further their research and education in other countries.
Christopher Stewart, MD, UCSF’s Fulbright Student Program adviser, led the effort to help make UCSF one of the top specialized institutions in the 2013 Fulbright Program.
All top producing institutions were highlighted in the Oct. 28 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education.
Established in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Program provides participants with the opportunity to study, teach, research and exchange ideas on an international level.
