fulbright logoFulbright, the largest U.S. exchange program, provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English teaching assistant programs outside of the United States. 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.

Since 2000, more than 80 Miami students and alumni—not including these latest offers—have received Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants to conduct research or teach overseas, according to Karla Guinigundo, director of global partnerships in Miami’s Office of Global Initiatives.

"Recent global events have underscored the critical importance of the Fulbright Program's mission to build intercultural bridges and increase mutual understanding across borders," Guinigundo said. "It is exciting to see these talented Miami University students and alumni become a part of this flagship international exchange program."
