The Fulbright Scholar U.S. Awards are competitive fellowships that enable American educators and researchers to participate in international teaching and research. Fulbright Scholars act as cultural ambassadors and contribute to mutual understanding between Americans and people in other countries. The Program's alumni network includes Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners and leaders across various sectors.

“I am so honored that I have been selected as a recipient of the prestigious Fulbright U.S. Scholar award, which marks a truly remarkable milestone in my academic career," Mi said. "This opportunity presents a chance to contribute to international understanding and collaboration, while also enriching my own scholarship. I look forward to the transformative experiences that lie ahead and to representing my institution with pride and excellence.”

The Fulbright Program, the United States government’s flagship program of international educational and cultural exchange, offers passionate and accomplished students and scholars in more than 160 countries the opportunity to study, teach, conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to mutual understanding.
