Rollins College was just recognized by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs for the 10th consecutive year for being a top producer of Fulbright Students.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program (Website), which was created under the Truman administration following World War II, is seen as the federal government’s lead educational exchange program and has sent more than 400,000 students to 160 countries since it started.
Four recent Rollins graduates were selected to receive 2021-22 Fulbright Scholarships. Madison Fritz ’21, Frances Turk ’20, Katherine Pearce ’19, and one awardee who wishes to remain anonymous at this time. Education majors Fritz and Turk are teaching English in Uruguay and Senegal, respectively. Pearce, an English major who minored in creative writing, is pursuing a master’s degree in creative writing at the University of Glasgow.
