Truman Recognized for Fulbright Winners

Truman was recently acknowledged as a top producer of U.S. Fulbright students for 2010-2011 in “The Chronicle of Higher Education.”

The University ranked second nationally among master’s institutions, with a total of four Fulbright students. Truman tied with six other institutions across the U.S. and finished one behind the University of Portland, which featured five Fulbright students.

Of Truman’s 11 Fulbright applicants, six were offered the award; however, two recipients ultimately declined.

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. A current objective of the program is to encourage participants to find innovative solutions to global issues such as climate change and pandemics.

Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 300,000 participants — chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.  

The Fulbright competition is administered at Truman through Maria Di Stefano, associate provost and dean of graduate studies. For more information about the program or the application process, visit or
