Smith sends 18 Fulbright Fellows to 14 countries

Smith celebrated a new record this week, when it learned that 18 recently-graduated students from the class of 2011 had been awarded Fulbright Fellowships. The college also hit four other records this year, as the college with the highest number of Fulbright applicants (40), applications to 30 different countries, the most finalists (29), and the highest first-round success rate (72.5%).

This year’s 18 Fulbright Fellows will be representing Smith and the United States in 14 different countries: Australia, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, Germany, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Korea, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, and Turkey.

Smith College began keeping records of Fulbright Fellowships in 1970. Since then, 210 Smithies have won Fulbrights. The college leads the nation in its success rate—the ratio of winners to applications—with a 45% success rate this year.
