Thirteen Cornell students have been selected to research and teach English abroad with funding from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

Cornell's 2023–24 Fulbright students include six graduate students and seven graduating undergraduates whose time abroad will increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Six of the awardees this year are based in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S).

They will join the ranks of over 500 Cornellians who have traveled across the globe as Fulbrighters since the 1940s.
