This year, the Department of Global Health welcomed six Fulbright scholars from Tunisia, Malawi, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Colombia. The Fulbright program provides prestigious grants that cover an academic year of living, studying, and engaging with the community at U.S. universities. Applying students submit a statement of defined activities they will pursue during their time in America, with graduate students having to demonstrate a capacity for independent study or research.
