Nine Columbia affiliates awarded 2014-15 Fulbright U.S. Student grants

Monday, June 2, 2014

Nine recently graduated seniors and alumni/ae have been awarded 2014-15 Fulbright U.S. Student grants. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program, offering grants for students and young professionals to undertake individually-designed international research and study projects or primary and secondary school teaching in English-language classrooms. During their grant periods, Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of their host country, sharing daily experiences and thereby promoting mutual understanding.  

The program currently awards approximately 1,900 grants annually in all fields of study and operates in more than 140 countries worldwide.  Fulbright U.S. Student Program alumni populate a range of professions and include ambassadors, members of Congress, judges, heads of corporations, university presidents, journalists, artists, professors and teachers.
