The 18 UW-Madison students are among over 1,900 U.S. citizens who will study, conduct research, and teach abroad for the 2018-2019 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as record of service and leadership potential in their respective fields.

"The University of Wisconsin-Madison is immensely proud of these students," said Guido Podestá, vice provost and dean of UW-Madison's International Division. "The Fulbright Program is an incredible platform for world research and intercultural exchange. I am pleased so many students from our university were selected for this honor."

Ten UW-Madison finalists were awarded Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants for study/research abroad.
