SAN LUIS OBISPO – The Institute of International Education and the Fulbright Program have named Cal Poly as one of this year’s Fulbright Scholarship Top Producer of U.S. Fulbright Scholars and acknowledged the excellent work of Raymond Zeuschner, interim director of International Education and Programs.

It followed Towson University and Cal State Los Angeles, which both had four Fulbright Scholars named, and the College of New Jersey, Creighton, Drury and Marshall universities, where each had three scholars identified.
