Nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains about 35 miles east of Los Angeles, a small liberal-arts college is establishing itself as a factory for a coveted international export: students who land Fulbright scholarships to teach or do research abroad. In the last four years, 48 students from Pomona College, which enrolls about 1,500 undergraduates, have received Fulbright awards. This year 25 graduates who applied through Pomona landed Fulbrights, by far the most of any liberal-arts college in the nation. While Pomona collected more Fulbrights than any other liberal-arts college this year, one of its neighbors has also had considerable success. Less than a mile away, Pitzer College, another small, private liberal-arts college in the Claremont Colleges consortium, has produced 36 scholars over the past four years, including eight this year.
