Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Every year, U.S. scholars in a wide variety of academic disciplines teach and conduct research at educational institutions and non-profit organizations across Sub-Saharan Africa.  U.S. Embassies in the region contribute to the program through their direction of an extensive network of scholars and share their expertise with colleagues and students. In addition to accomplishing their grant-specific goals, Fulbright Scholars often build lasting relationships that serve as the foundation for on-going projects and other interactions on the personal and the institution level.
