Fulbright Scholars

The U.S. Department of State sponsors the Fulbright Program in collaboration with many foreign governments around the world. There are 49 Fulbright Commissions worldwide, and where commissions do not exist, the program is facilitated by U.S. embassies in cooperation with host country governments. The Fulbright Non-U.S. Scholar Program is administered in the U.S. by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), a division within the Institute of International Education (IIE). This organization works to recruit, advise, and provide J-1 Exchange Visitor Scholar sponsorship to Fulbrighters at UIC in a research-focused capacity.

During your time at UIC as a Fulbright Scholar, the Office of International Services will work to support your success by welcoming you to campus, connecting you to resources, and providing cultural and educational programming. We are so glad you are here!

Questions related to your immigration status such as travel, insurance, U.S. Social Security Numbers, and tax filing must be directed to the Fulbright advisor at your sponsoring organization. OIS advisors do not have access to your SEVIS record, and therefore, cannot advise on your immigration status.
