UH Students Receive Record Number of Fulbrights in 2017-18

The Office of Undergraduate Research at the University of Houston celebrated a record-breaking year in 2017-18, with six UH students receiving Fulbright awards for research and teaching, the most awarded in a given year in the school’s history and more than the previous five years combined.

Ben Rayder, director of National Fellowships and Major Awards, is pleased to see so many UH students recognized for their academic achievements: “Not only are these students part of a record-breaking class, but they also represent the start of a larger Fulbright trend at UH,” he said. “Students at the University of Houston are excellent candidates for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program and have the potential to be dynamic cultural ambassadors abroad.”
