Charles Rabolli of Rutgers University (DBP Class of 2014) has received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program award to Italy in
Cardiovascular Engineering from the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign
Scholarship Board. Rabolli will conduct research at the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and
Biotechnology as part of a project to identify potentially cardioprotective factors in vivo.
Rabolli is one of over 1,900 U.S. citizens who will conduct research, teach English, and provide expertise
abroad for the 2018-2019 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright
awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as record of service and
leadership potential in their respective fields.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S.
government and is designed to build lasting connections between the people of the United States and the people
of other countries. The Fulbright Program is funded through an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress
to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments and
host institutions, corporations, and foundations around the world also provide direct and indirect support to the
Program, which operates in over 160 countries worldwide.
Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has given more than 380,000 students, scholars, teachers,
artists, professionals, and scientists the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas, and
contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
Fulbrighters address critical global challenges in all areas while building relationships, knowledge, and
leadership in support of the long-term interests of the United States. Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction
in many fields, including 59 who have been awarded the Nobel Prize, 82 who have received Pulitzer Prizes, and
37 who have served as a head of state or government.
