Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools world-wide. The program was established in 1946 by the U.S. Congress to "enable the government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries."
Congratulations to Economics department alumnus Daniel Courteau, who has been awarded a Fulbright grant for the 2021-22 cycle to pursue a Master's degree in Agricultural Economics at Natinonal Taiwan University.
There is an incredibly wide range of opportunities for both economics and social science students including English Teaching Awards, graduate study, and independent research through the Fulbright program.
