Fulbright success earns top ten ranking

Wheaton College continues to rank among the top ten liberal arts colleges in the nation, when it comes to preparing students to win Fulbright Scholarships for advanced study and work abroad.

Wheaton tied for ninth place with four other institutions (Bowdoin, Denison, Gettysburg and Spelman colleges), according to The Chronicle of Higher Education and the Institute for International Education, which administers the Fulbright program.

This marks the sixth consecutive year that Wheaton has ranked among the nation's top ten liberal arts colleges in the production of Fulbright Scholars. Overall, the college's students have won 58 Fulbright awards from 1998 through 2010.

Six members of the Class of 2010 won Fulbright Scholarships. They are conducting research, studying and teaching English in Denmark, Germany, Malaysia, South Korea, Slovak Republic and Turkey.

The success of Wheaton's students in winning the Fulbright reflects the college's broader achievements in preparing young women and men to excel in earning a wide variety of international scholarships. Since 2000, more than 130 Wheaton graduates have won awards such as the Rhodes, Marshall and Truman scholarships.
