From Japan to Qatar to Kazakhstan, 13 Dartmouth seniors and alumni will spread out across the globe to conduct postgraduate research on subjects as diverse as Nazi looting, pop music, and relativity physics, thanks to Fulbright and German Academic Exchange Service (the German equivalent of a Fulbright) scholarships. Additionally, five sophomores and juniors have won other major national scholarships this spring, including the Beinecke, Goldwater, Truman, and Udall awards.

"This year was a particularly great year for Fulbrights," says Scholarship Advisor Kristin O'Rourke. "Almost 50 percent of our applicants won." The overall Fulbright acceptance rate for U.S. applicants is about 20 percent.
