Successes & News
Congratulations to the 31 Smith College 2017-18 candidates for the 2018-19 Fulbright Fellowship for successfully completing your applications, and thank you to the some-200 Smith faculty and staff members who supported them in producing about 1,000 pages of application materials. It is this rallying around our applicants that helps keep Smith the strongest Fulbright program in the nation:
The 2017-18 candidates applied to 25 countries. Of the 31 Fulbright applicants, 11 (about 35 percent) self-identified as minority candidates. The ever-increasing number of countries targeted by Smithies shows how our adventurous and trail-blazing students are eager to represent the United States across the globe.
The Fulbright cohort comprised 24 seniors and 7 alumnae. Among them, 10 applied to conduct research projects, two to pursue masters degrees, 19 to teach English as a second language.

It Takes a Community!
