We did it again! The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has named Loyola University New Orleans among Top U.S. Fulbright Producers for the 2017-2018 academic year. The news, released Sunday, is highlighted annually in the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Loyola is honored to have three Fulbright U.S. Student Award recipients for the 2017-2018 year — Natalie Jones '14, Mathew Holloway '16 and Lauren Stroh '17. Moreover, a total of five Fulbright award offers went to Loyola this spring; recent graduates Emily Edwards ’16 and Michael Pashkevich ’17 had the rare opportunity to decline this award in pursuit of other exciting ventures.

“The Fulbright Award is one of the most prestigious awards an undergraduate or graduate student can win, and we are overjoyed to learn that based on our Carnegie classification, and size and type of institution, Loyola University New Orleans once again ranks among the Top U.S. Fulbright Producers,” said Loyola University New Orleans President the Rev. Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D. “At Loyola New Orleans, we encourage our students to ‘go forth and set the world on fire,’ and we are always pleased to see our students succeeding.”

“Being named a Top U.S. Producer of Fulbright Scholars underscores the outstanding academic offerings and excellent education we offer at Loyola,” said Provost and Chief Operating Officer David B. Borofsky.

“Loyola University New Orleans is a small Jesuit Catholic liberal arts institution that provides one-on-one collaborative learning experiences in an environment of academic rigor and with a focus on development of the whole person. We are pleased to see our students aligning their research, study and extracurricular experiences with career interests to win highly competitive Fulbright Awards that allow them to continue focused study and exploration.”

Jones, Holloway, and Stroh were each selected for the Fulbright program’s English Teaching Assistant program, which places Fulbright recipients in classrooms abroad to provide assistance to the local English teachers, teaching English while serving as cultural ambassadors for the United States. In addition to teaching English, each Fulbright recipient must take on a supplementary research project of their own creation based on their interests and studies.

The Fulbright competition is administered at Loyola University New Orleans through Carol Ann MacGregor, assistant professor of sociology and national fellowships adviser at Loyola. More information on how to apply can be found on Loyola’s website.
