Dear President Yong:

Congratulations to Evergreen Valley College on being named one of this year's Fulbright Program "top producers" as announced in The Chronicle of Higher Education's February 19 online edition.  It clearly demonstrates your university's deep commitment to international exchange and to fostering stronger relationships between the United States and the more than 160 countries that take part in the Fulbright Program.

Since the Fulbright Program's inception in 1946, more than 370,000 Fulbrighters from the United States and abroad -competitively chosen for their academic merit and leadership qualities -have exchanged ideas and contributed to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction in business, science, the arts, philanthropy, education, government, and many other fields, and help make our world more prosperous and secure.

Your place among the Fulbright Program's top producing institutions is a testament to your commitment to preparing Americans for today's interconnected world and dynamic global economy.  Please accept again our congratulations. I do hope you will let us know if there are further ways we can help you to support Fulbright or other State Department-funded exchange programs on your campus.​
