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. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for English teaching assistantships as well as for individually designed study/research projects. Recipients are chosen for their academic merit and intellectual potential.

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.  Those from Rhodes who will be competing for Fulbright U.S. Student Awards for 2020-2021 are:
