The University has announced that five students have been named finalists for 2018 Fulbright awards to teach English, do research, or attend graduate school abroad. At no. 4, the University of Portland continues to be one of the top producers of Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards in the nation among master’s level institutions, according to a study released by the Chronicle of Higher Education. In addition to the 2018 finalists, the University has had 64 students participate in the program since 2001.
The 2018 finalists offered English Teaching Assistantships (ETA) include Tsikata Apenyo ’18 (Taiwan); Arran Fagan ’18 and Lauren Jones ’18 (Malaysia); Hannah Robinson ’14 (Spain); and Molly Steiner ’18 (Mexico). Apenyo represents the University of Portland’s first award to Taiwan.
The United States Fulbright program began in 1946 after World War II to “assist in the development of friendly, sympathetic and peaceful relations between the United States and other countries of the world” through the exchange of students, scholars and professionals. The program operates in more than 140 countries worldwide.
