Fulbright Legacy

In the University of Dallas' 60-year history, 39 alumni have received Fulbright Awards to study, teach or research abroad.

Fulbrighters are valuable contributors to an exchange of knowledge, skills, ideas, and mutual understanding. The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas and is sponsored by the United States Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). Students and recent graduates with questions about applying to the Fulbright should email Senior Career Services Advisor Gaby Martin at gmartin@udallas.edu
