Scholarly pursuits

Ohio State students, faculty and staff continue to help the university exhibit excellence in the globally focused Fulbright program.

More Ohio State faculty and staff were named Fulbright Scholars than any other research institution in the country. Fourteen faculty and staff, including two from Ohio State regional campuses, were recognized with the honor and will use the awards to continue their scholarly pursuits abroad.

The university was 14th nationally in producing Fulbright student honorees. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide.
