The Fulbright Program recently announced the complete list of colleges and universities that produced the most 2009-10 U.S. Fulbright Fellows. The success of the top producing institutions was highlighted in the October 19 print edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Santa Clara University was one of 29 master’s institutions to be called out in this list. Two students from SCU won Fulbright awards for 2009-10:

  • Beth Tellman, ’09, was recipient of the Fulbright U.S. Student Award. Tellman, who double majored in sustainable globalization and environmental studies, is researching food security for coffee farmers in El Salvador.
  • Benjamin Snyder, ’09, who majored in political science, German, and history, was awarded a Fulbright Teacher Assistantship Award that took him to Saxony, in the former East Germany, where he is teaching English to secondary school students.
