Fourteen Dartmouth students and alumni have been awarded Fulbright scholarships, according to the College’s Fulbright program advisor Holly Taylor. Nine of the fourteen recipients were awarded grants for study and research, while the remaining five were awarded grants as English teaching assistants. Dartmouth’s Fulbright scholars may go to Brazil, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Germany, India, Ireland, Morocco, Poland and South Korea to pursue their projects.

The recipients are Charlotte Blatt ’18, Madeleine Coffey ’18, Sarah Cohen ’18, Mary Liza Hartong GR’18, Alyssa Heinze ’18, Amanda Herz ’18, Axel Hufford ’16, James Jung ’14, Natasha Maldi ’16, Gricelda Ramos ’18, Alexandra Reichert ’18, Nicole Simineri ’17, Catherine Treyz ’13 and Karen Wen ’16. Two Dartmouth students or alumni were also named as alternates, which means they may be offered an award if additional funding becomes available.

The total number of recipients compares similarly to last year’s total of 15 Dartmouth students and alumni. In the 2015-2016 cycle, eight students and alumni received the award.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, provides grants for students to pursue individually-proposed study or research projects or participate in English Teaching Assistant Programs for one academic year in a country outside of the United States to promote mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations.
