2019-2020 Map of Fulbright Recipients:
Along with Fulbright Scholarships, access to funding and historical emphasis on undergraduate research are important metrics in determining the strength of a research institution. For example, Bowdoin College offers between $800 and 2,000 per student via grants whereas Bates College offers up to $300 per student per grant. Larger doctoral institutions have much larger budgets, with Harvard boasting $937 million for research and development in 2019, but this funding must be shared across faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates.

(1) The US Fulbright Scholarship is a government-sponsored research program that sends US students and scholars abroad to live, work, and engage with people of their research’s host country. It is a highly competitive program, with most reports estimating an award rate of 20%, and selection indicates an impressive background in research, thus reflecting highly on a students’ college or university.
