Fulbright is the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world. The program—working with universities, schools, binational Fulbright commissions, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector—actively seeks out individuals of achievement and potential who represent the full diversity of their respective societies and selects nominees through open, merit-based competitions. This year, American scholars are coming to Qatar to teach and conduct research at HBKU on medicine and the environment.
