Fulbright at Ohio State

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.
