The internationalization of the UGA campus and student body continues apace:
The University of Georgia is 25th among research universities for the production of Fulbright Student Scholars in the 2012-2013 academic year, according to the latest ranking from the government's flagship international exchange program.
Sixteen University of Georgia students were offered international travel-study grants from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the 2012-2013 academic year. Thirteen of these accepted the scholarships. The student Fulbright competition is administered at UGA through Maria de Rocher, coordinator of Honors programming.
Twelve of these thirteen who accepted scholarships are in the Franklin College. And granted, the student Fulbright scholars are not only internationally-focused but very ambitious, hard-working and like our recent Rhodes Scholar Elizabeth Allan, making the opportunities on campus work for them to build a unique set of credentials. It's the extraordinary path to the career they want and these students distinguish the university and the Franklin College even as they are making it work for them. Congratulations and thank you.
