I see nothing about war criminals who were fulbright scholars !
Does anybody know anything about how the Fulbright has been expanded? The Fulbright Program has been expanded in a number of ways over the years. The best resource for more information would be the Annual Report of the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. The latest report can be found on their web site at http://exchanges.state.gov/education/fulbright/ffsb/ . And has there always been a home residency requirement clause in the program? I have heard that it was Western European governments who in the 1950s insisted that this clause should be added because they meant the Fulbright Program lead to brain-drain. However, I have never got this story verified.
Was Clinton a fullbright? I don't think so. I think he was just a Rhodes scholar.
Clinton won a Fulbright award: an extremely selective award granted yearly to one participant. He did not participate in any Fulbright program. "Just a Rhodes scholar" is probably inappropriate as Rhodes is a far more difficult award to receive. I hope this clears up the misunderstanding. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:10, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
To the unsigned user above: I think you're confusing the J. William Fulbright Prize for International Understanding and the Fulbright Scholarship. Clinton was awarded the former, but his scholarship was Rhodes. --LarryMColeman 18:24, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
- "More Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes than those of any other academic program, including two in 2002."
That's probably not surprising since, as stated,
- "more than 250,000 individuals have received Fulbright grants".
April 25, 2007: cleanup requested
I've requested cleanup on this page as (1) much of the page is written like an advertisement or uses many weasel-words and (2) the organization of sections is not clear. For example, the Fulbright alumni section does not make it clear that these are alumni of the US Student programs. Perhaps, as a starting point, the long-ish intro could be split up into a History section and a section on the US Student Program, cf. the Fulbright Prize section. Information is also pretty much missing on foreign student programs. mitcho/芳貴 23:57, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
- I don't understand the logic of why a scholarship information can be written in "advertisement" format as what the tag is put. How can a scholarship be marketed? Sounds funny. Please remove unnecessary tag. 220.127.116.11 15:19, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
- I am referring to phrasing such as "have recognized the importance of continued involvement and action in the name of increasing mutual understanding" and also the unreferenced figure of "36 Nobel Prize Winners among its alumni, more than any other scholarship program of its kind." mitcho/芳貴 06:15, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
On another cleanup matter, the line "Josh Lyman, Deputy Chief of Staff to President Josiah Bartlett" in the list of Fulbright Scholars, doesn't adequately reflect that this is a fictional character added on to a list of real people. Drakkenfyre 08:48, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
- White Fulbright stood on stolen Red Indian land. Admittedly, he was born there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:11, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
Just a note of clarification... Dolph Lundgren was awarded a Fulbright, but resigned after 2 weeks. As far as the Fulbright Program is concerned, being a Fulbright "recipient" or alum includes completing the award term. I'm not editing anything and will leave it to the community to decide.
