Nine OSU Students Offered Grants From the Fulbright U.S. Student Program


Nine Ohio State students have been offered grants from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the academic year 2018-2019. Fulbright grants offer one year of academic study, research, or teaching assistantship experience in more than 160 countries. Over 1,900 grants are awarded annually to increase mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations and foundations in foreign countries and in the United States also provide direct and indirect support. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of qualifications such as their academic success, leadership capabilities, and desire to foster mutual cultural understanding.
