A record 11 Virginia Commonwealth University scholars have received U.S. Fulbright Student Program awards for the 2016-2017 academic year. This represents the largest group of recipients from VCU in a single year accepted to this nationally competitive program.

Four recipients have been awarded English Teaching Assistant grants and seven have been awarded research grants. Three recipients graduated in May, seven are recent alumni and one is a current student.

VCU has the largest number of Fulbright awards for 2016-2017 announced to date by a Virginia college or university.
