This year’s bumper crop of Fulbright recipients at USC includes 12 alumni, four doctoral students and one undergraduate. Their fellowships enable them to span the globe, taking them to Andorra, Armenia, Belarus, Colombia, Ivory Coast, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Taiwan and Thailand to pursue research and gain valuable teaching experience in the countries of their choice.

USC has been recognized as being among the top 40 research institutions in the United States to cultivate Fulbright Student Grant recipients, according to the Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program.

Established in 1946 and sponsored by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright is the largest international fellowship program in the United States. The Fulbright Student Grant supports one year of independent study, research and teaching in one of more than 140 countries around the world. Nearly 9,000 students nationwide recently competed for about 1,900 Fulbright grants.
