Three University of Missouri students were recently selected for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, and two students are alternates if additional funding becomes available.

A prestigious program that provides scholarships for recent graduates, graduate students and young professionals to undertake research, study or teaching abroad, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program aims to promote cross-cultural exchange and mutual understanding between the United States and other countries.
