The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Department of State’s flagship exchange program. Fulbright provides students and scholars with opportunities for international research, study, and teaching. Each year, UAB welcomes international Fulbright recipients. We also support students, faculty, administrators, and staff applying for Fulbright grants to other countries.
