Five faculty members from The Ohio State University have been selected as recipients of prestigious Fulbright fellowships. Recipients are selected by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, which administers the program for the U.S. Department of State. Fulbright Scholar Programs offer U.S. faculty, administrators and professionals grants to lecture, do research or participate in seminars. Nearly 800 U.S. faculty and professionals travel abroad every year.
