Fulbright Program at UofSC

Led by the United States government in partnership with more than 160 countries worldwide, the Fulbright Program offers international educational and cultural exchange programs for passionate and accomplished students, scholars, artists, teachers, and professionals of all backgrounds to study, teach, or pursue important research and professional projects. Approximately 8,000 competitive, merit-based grants are awarded annually in most academic disciplines and fields of study to students, faculty, professionals and groups. Grants are available for US citizens to go abroad and for non-US citizens to come to the United States. Through unique international educational and cultural exchange programs, Fulbright’s diverse and dynamic network of scholars, alumni and global partners fosters mutual understanding between the United States and partner nations, shares knowledge across communities, and improves lives around the world.
