The Fulbright New Century Scholars global program brought together groups of approximately 30 outstanding research scholars and professionals from the U.S. and other participating countries. Participants were selected through an open competition to conduct multi-disciplinary research on a global theme. Aimed at bringing new depth and visibility to the core program, the Fulbright New Century Scholar Program supported interdisciplinary, collaborative research across borders. As of November 2010, no new topic is planned.
