Fulbright Overview

Fulbright top producer 2019 2020

Launched in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided over 390,000 participants with the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. More than 800 U.S. college and university faculty and administrators, professionals, artists, journalists, scientists, lawyers, and independent scholars are awarded Fulbright grants to teach and/or conduct research annually in over 125 countries throughout the world.

The University of South Florida was recognized as one of the top producers in the United States for 2019 - 2020, with 9 faculty members earning the highly competitive awards, and placed No. 1 in 2018 - 2019, with a total of 12 faculty members. USF’s Fulbright Scholars travel around the globe and represent a wide range of research backgrounds, such as big data, mental health, nursing, psychology, education, and biomedical science. 

In 2018 - 2019, the Chronicle of Higher Education first announced the top producers, highlighting USF as the only institution in America to have 10 or more scholars for the academic year. This was USF’s second time leading the nation, having finished No. 1 in 2016-17.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our 2019 - 2020 awardees have had to return home. They will be featured here when we have more information as to the status of their Fulbright experience.
