Western is the TOP PRODUCER IN THE NATION for Fulbright Scholarship winners among public master’s granting institutions! Couldn't be more proud of our students.
Western finished third nationally among all master’s granting institutions, public or private, in the 2013 ranking. It also finished tied for second with the University of Portland in the Pacific Northwest for all institutions, regardless of size, behind only the University of Washington.
Western produced nine Fulbright winners in 2013, a record for the institution. Even though three of those scholarships were judged in the ranking to be supplemental, and thus not counted in its total, Western’s adjusted total of six still placed it tops in the nation in its category.
