The College, which has had a total of 315 such students throughout the school's history, has been recognized as a Fulbright Top Producing Institution for U.S. students 15 times since 2009-10.

The Fulbright Program was founded in 1946 with an ambitious goal—to increase mutual understanding and support friendly and peaceful relations between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

As the U.S. government's flagship international academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 400,000 talented and accomplished students, scholars, teachers, artists, and professionals of all backgrounds the opportunity to study, teach, and conduct research abroad.

Fulbright alumni work to make a positive impact on their communities, sectors, and the world and have included 41 heads of state or government, 62 Nobel Laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners, 80 MacArthur Fellows, and countless leaders and changemakers who build mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

For the 2023-24 academic year, Bowdoin College was No. 1 in the list of top producers of Fulbright students for bachelor’s institutions.
