This year UMBC has twelve Fulbright semi-finalists and of those twelve, five are from the Honors College.

As semi-finalists, the Fulbright National Selection Committee has sent their applications on to their respective host countries for the next round of review. Those who are selected as finalists will be notified between mid-March and mid-May.
