Penn Arts & Sciences 2020-21 Fulbright Scholars

Sixteen Penn Arts & Sciences students and alumni have been awarded Fulbright grants for the 2020-21 academic year. They will conduct research or teach English in Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Indonesia, Jordan, Laos, Malaysia, Russia, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, and Ukraine.

The Fulbright Program is the United States government’s flagship international educational exchange program, awarding grants to fund as long as 12 months of international experience. Most Fulbright grants are for individual study or research, or for the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Program.

“The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides an exceptional opportunity for American students to forge international relationships through educational and cultural exchange,” says Jane Morris, Executive Director of Penn’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships, which supports applicants. “Fulbright students from Penn represent not only our country abroad, but they also serve as outstanding ambassadors for Penn.”
