Academics: Study Abroad

Fulbright Fellows

Chosen for their leadership potential, Fulbright fellows are given the opportunity to study, teach, or conduct research in other countries, and develop international competence and cross-cultural expertise.

Spelman has been positioned among leading colleges and universities for the international educational exchange program for years and is the only Georgia college ranked a top producer in its category.

The Fulbright Program is administered at Spelman College through the Study Abroad and International Exchange Office. “I am so pleased that Spelman moved up two places on the top-producing list this year due to our increased number of winners,” said Margery A. Ganz, Ph.D., Spelman’s Fulbright program adviser.

Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 300,000 participants --chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. In the past 64 years, more than 44,000 students from the United States have benefited from the Fulbright experience. 

The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the United States Congress to the Department of State.
