Twelve Pitzer Seniors and Two Alumni Awarded Fulbright Fellowships for 2008-09

Pitzer College is pleased to acknowledge the twelve Pitzer students and two alumni who have been awarded 2008-09 Fulbright Fellowships for research and teaching abroad. The College embraces a unique set of educational objectives that encourages students from all majors to think about the world in ways that expand their understanding of other cultures while working to translate that knowledge into action that will benefit their local communities. This type of learning is fostered by the Pitzer curriculum in Claremont and at our study abroad sites around the world.

Pitzer students and alumni can register as applicants for next year's Fulbright competition at https://apply.embark.com/student/fulbright/usa/20/
