With three alumni receiving prestigious Fulbright grants for 2018-19, Mary Washington is Virginia’s top producer of Fulbright U.S. Students among institutions that grant master’s degrees. It’s also one of the top producers nationwide.
The “top producer” honor recognizes the success of current students and alumni in receiving grants for study, teaching, and research in foreign countries.
Last spring, three Mary Washington alumni were awarded English teaching assistant grants through the Fulbright program. Molly Bernhard ’14 spent the 2018-19 academic year in Bulgaria; Destiny Williams ’18 was in Taiwan; and Molly Garthwaite ’17, M.Ed. ’18 was in India.
The awards highlight Mary Washington’s continued success in student Fulbright awards, bringing the total to 22 scholarships since 2006. UMW also was named a top producer of student Fulbright awards in 2013-14 and 2016-17.
