“Earning this distinction is yet another proof point for the lifelong value and academic rigor of a Saint Joseph's education.” - President Cheryl A. McConnell, PhD
This is the third time in University history that Saint Joseph’s has been awarded a Fulbright Top Producing Institution designation. SJU is also the only Philadelphia university to have been recognized in the master's institutions category.
“This honor reflects well on the quality and hard work of our student fellowship applicants and speaks to the excellent faculty mentoring they receive here,” says Mark Reynolds, PhD, director of the Office of Fellowships and associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry.
Fulbright is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program. Since its inception in 1946, more than 400,000 participants from all backgrounds and fields have participated in the program.
“Earning this distinction is yet another proof point for the lifelong value and academic rigor of a Saint Joseph's education," says President Cheryl A. McConnell, PhD. “The education we offer is designed to foster an appreciation for the larger world and kindle a desire to make a positive impact. The Fulbright Program is one critical avenue to launch our graduates into that world.”
The Fulbright Program was established over 75 years ago to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
