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.” With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided almost 300,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
During the Spring Semester, 2011, the UNC Center for Faculty Excellence and the Center for Global Initiatives plan to host a series of information sessions to help decipher the complex application process and to provide guidance to those who are interested in the Fulbright Scholar Program. Please sign up for our biweekly eBulletin to stay informed.
Fulbright Scholar grants are administered by the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars (CIES). The Center for Global Initiatives serves as the campus representative, however all application materials are accepted directly by CIES.
