USF Fulbright Day 2021

Friday, April 9th

USF’s fourth annual Fulbright Day was held virtually through Microsoft Teams on Friday, April 9, 2021. USF Fulbright Day is a campus-wide event that celebrates international education through USF’s Fulbright legacy with the Fulbright Scholar Program (for US and foreign Faculty) and the Fulbright Student Program (for US and foreign Students).

A variety of different programming celebrated our student and faculty Fulbrighters and allowed USF students, faculty and the community to learn more about the Fulbright Programs from a representative from the Institute of International Education (IIE) and USF’s Fulbright Program Advisors.
