Ten Ohio State students receive Fulbright awards

Ten students from The Ohio State University received Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards for the 2021-2022 academic year from the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

Fulbright participants will study, conduct research and teach abroad for the 2021-2022 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected in an open, merit-based competition that considers leadership potential, academic and/or professional achievement and record of service.

“Ohio State continues its record of excellence in producing Fulbright Students with this latest round of award recipients,” said President Kristina M. Johnson. “That is a testament to the academic rigor our institution provides and to the deep and abiding commitment our students have to embodying our land grant mission of service to the greater – in this case, global – community. This exciting opportunity will enable award recipients to broaden their world view and share their knowledge on an international stage. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for them.”

Fulbright students join a network of thousands of alumni, many of whom are leaders in their fields. Fulbright alumni include 60 Nobel Prize laureates, 88 Pulitzer Prize recipients and 39 who have served as a head of state or government.

The program is administered at Ohio State through the Undergraduate Fellowship Office for undergraduate students and at the Graduate School through Fellowship Services for graduate students.
