Pitzer College Named a Top Fulbright Producer in 2023–24


itzer College is one of the top producers of Fulbright students in 2023–24, according to a U.S. Fulbright announcement released this spring. This marks the 15th consecutive year that Pitzer has been recognized for this achievement.

The Fulbright is a highly competitive program administered by the U.S. Department of State to promote cultural and intellectual exchange between recipients and some 140 countries worldwide.

During their grants, recipients study, work, conduct research, and live with people from their host country to gain a deeper appreciation of other beliefs and cultural perspectives.

Top-producing schools are divided into two categories: those with the most Fulbright scholars (which refers to faculty members or other professionals) and those with the most Fulbright students (which applies to undergraduates).

With nine Pitzer students awarded for 2023–24, Pitzer places among the top 13 institutions in the baccalaureate category.

For Pitzer President Strom C. Thacker, who was a Fulbright scholar in Mexico, the College’s continuing success as a top producer enhances its global reputation.

“I am thrilled to see Pitzer recognized once again this year as a top producer of Fulbright recipients,” he said. “I’m honored by this recognition of our College’s leadership in this realm and so proud of our brilliant students and the outstanding faculty and staff who support them. They will continue to advance Pitzer’s mission and values and, with this support, will be able to make an even bigger difference in the world.”
