Fulbright Scholars

The Fulbright Program is an American scholarship programme of competitive, merit-based grants for international educational exchange for students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists. Under the Fulbright Programme, competitively selected American citizens are given scholarships to study, conduct research, or exercise their talents abroad; and citizens of other countries may qualify to do the same in the United States of America.


The programme is intended to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. It is one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. CHRIST (Deemed to be University) has been hosting Fulbright Fellows and Scholars from various Universities in the US for the past few years. Following are the Fulbright Fellows and Scholars who have been affiliated to CHRIST (Deemed to be University) for their Fulbright Grants.
