For academic year 2016-2017 the Fulbright Foundation awarded 65 scholarships to Greek and U.S. grantees continuing a 68 year old tradition of excellence.

Grantees were chosen after rigorous review from a large pool of extremely qualified candidates. This year’s Fulbright scholars encompass a diverse range of academic interests, from music performance and financial law to genetics and macroeconomics, gender studies and energy to urban studies and physics, medieval and renaissance history, leadership development, documentary filmmaking, civic engagement and crisis management. U.S. institutions where Greek scholars will study include Yale University, Columbia, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts, Purdue and the University of Chicago. U.S. scholars will study in various academic and research institutions in Greece like the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, University of Patras, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas, University of Crete and other.

On this page you will find a section with the Profiles of Greek and U.S. scholarship recipients for the current academic year and a section entitled Grantees Speak which includes quotes and information on their Fulbright experience. Each year, Fulbright scholarship recipients embark on trans-Atlantic exchanges and programs that bring forth a world of new professional and scholarly opportunities and collaborations and that build bridges with other cultures and countries.
