Twenty Cornell undergraduate and graduate students will travel abroad during the 2008-09 academic year through the Fulbright program, and another three students through Fulbright-Hays fellowships.

Sponsored by the U.S. State Department, the Fulbright program increases understanding between the United States and other countries through exchange of people, knowledge and skills. Fulbright-Hays doctoral dissertation research abroad awards, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, support six to 12 months of research in a foreign country.

At Cornell both programs are administered by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies. The winners, their majors, project titles and host countries:
