The University of Redlands has nurtured 21 Fulbright students in the past eight years. The "Chronicle of Higher Education" and the Fulbright Commission have twice lauded Redlands for producing significant numbers of undergraduate scholars.
The J.W. Fulbright awards are the highest and most distinguished awards granted by the Congress of the United States, through the U.S. Department of State, to a graduating University senior in a competitive merit based competition. Named after J. William Fulbright, the longest serving chairperson of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, these awards designate the selected applicants as "student ambassadors" for the United States. Students awarded Fulbrights are provided the financial and administrative support to either teach or conduct research in one of over 100 nations, for a year, abroad.
