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. Fulbright provides participants the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
The Office of International Affairs administers the Fulbright Scholar Program for Ohio State faculty and professional staff and the visiting Fulbright Fellows. In addition, International Affairs oversees the Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Program for graduate students, which is administered through the U.S. Department of Education.
The Graduate School, the Undergraduate Fellowship Office and the Office of International Affairs have combined efforts to provide a full week of events acknowledging past Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays recipients, hosting workshops, information sessions and open houses, designed to inform potential faculty, undergraduate and graduate student applicants about the opportunities available through the Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays programs. All faculty, professionals and students are welcome to participate in a myriad of activities that will be scheduled during the 5th annual Fulbright Week at Ohio State, April 7 - 11, 2014. A complete schedule of activities will be available soon.
