Fulbright Nexus Program

Fulbright NEXUS Program– At its core, the Fulbright NEXUS Program fosters collaborative and multidisciplinary research to address challenging regional issues and produce tangible results.

  • Twenty outstanding scholars and practitioners from the U.S. and abroad are selected as Fulbright NEXUS Scholars to participate in the program through an open competition. Five of the scholars are selected from the United States, five from Brazil, and the remaining ten will come from the Western Hemisphere countries.

This year, program activities will commence in June 2014 and conclude in May 2016.
