Increasing Mutual Understanding through Student Exchange

U.S. Fulbright Students

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.

The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing grantees to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, Fulbrighters interact with their hosts in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.

Visiting (Non-U.S.) Fulbright Students

UC Davis has welcomed many non-US citizens through the Fulbright Foreign Student Program.

A mainstay of America’s public-diplomacy efforts, the Fulbright Foreign Student Program brings citizens of other countries to the United States for Master’s degree or Ph.D. study at U.S. universities or other appropriate institutions. The program has brought some of the world’s finest minds to U.S. campuses and offers program participants insight into U.S. society and values.

Many foreign Fulbright grantees are early-career professionals who will return to take leadership positions in their home countries, often working at universities or in government service.
