Sixteen Rutgers University students will travel abroad during the 2010-2011 academic year to teach or conduct research as recipients of prestigious Fulbright Scholarships. They will serve as English teaching assistants or continue their research in 13 countries in Europe, Africa, and South America. This year’s total is the highest in nearly two decades.

Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields.
