Adrienne Klein Named a Fulbright Finalist

February 1, 2010

Senior Adrienne Klein has been recommended for a grant under the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the academic year 2010-11 to Argentina. To be a recommended candidate her application had to pass the initial screening process here in the U.S. and now has been forwarded to Argentina for further consideration. The final decision regarding her application will be made by the supervising agency in the host country and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

The Fulbright award is a highly coveted scholarship given annually to support student projects and academic endeavors abroad. The Fulbright student scholarship, which was named after Senator J. William Fulbright, is intended for recent bachelor’s degree recipients and master’s and doctoral candidates, as well as young professionals and artists.

In 2005, 14 Smith students (11 seniors and three alumnae) were offered Fulbrights, up from nine the previous year. Also, out of 30 applications to Fulbright from Smith students, a record 21 were finalists for the award.

According to the Fulbright Program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of State, Smith is the top producer of Fulbright fellows among the nation’s liberal arts colleges.
