Diksha Dhar, a Fulbright Nehru Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA observed, “while on the Fulbright-Nehru grant, I attended three major conferences in the U.S. and had the opportunity to present my research.  These events provided a platform for me to network and discuss various issues that impact the bilateral ties between India and the U.S.  Currently, I lead an English Language Enhancement Program for tribal teachers and students across 113 government schools in Khunti, Jharkand.”

Usha Raman, a Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence Scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA said, “while on the Fulbright-Nehru grant, I was able to make considerable progress on two research papers as a result of access to excellent library resources and a peer group with whom I could share ideas.”
