UW–Madison students, faculty receive 2012-13 Fulbright program grants

Fourteen University of Wisconsin–Madison students have received 2012-13 fellowships from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the country’s flagship program for international exchange. Additionally, three graduate students have received Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad grants, and four faculty members have been awarded grants through the CIES Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program.

Since its establishment in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Program has given approximately 310,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists, and scientists the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

UW–Madison has been among the leading U.S. research institutions producing Fulbright fellows and scholars.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides recipients with funding for a full academic year of study, research or assistant teaching abroad. This program is sponsored by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, with significant contributions from participating governments and host institutions.
