277th Meeting: J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board Celebrates International Education Week with Distinguished Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows

The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB) held its 277th quarterly board meeting on November 14 in Davis, California. Thank you to UC Davis for hosting.

As part of the agenda, three distinguished Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows from Pakistan, Tunisia, and Trinidad and Tobago will deliver remarks about their academic projects at UC Davis. A Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Fellowship alumnus will also present on his experience in Malaysia and Ecuador. Later tonight, Board members will meet Fulbright and Humphrey grantees and alumni at a special reception hosted by the university.

UC Davis, a strong supporter of international exchanges with a diverse community of international students and scholars, ranks 11th among U.S. universities in the number of international students. They will be celebrating International Education Week 2017 throughout the week with a wide range of events highlighting the benefits of international education and worldwide exchange.

UC Davis is also a strong partner of the Fulbright Program, sending and hosting a number of U.S. and visiting Fulbrighters each academic year. Further, UC Davis is one of 13 universities in the United States selected to host recipients of the prestigious The Hubert H Humphrey Fellowship Program.

Humphrey Fellows are future leaders – early- and mid-career professionals – from designated countries who are selected through a merit-based process to spend a year in the United States for non-degree graduate level study, leadership development, and professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts.
