Exploring New Frontiers: Dr. Zul Ilham Zulkiflee Lubes' Fulbright Journey to Cornell University

The Malaysian Fulbright Scholar Program is a bi-national educational program created by the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE), during which qualified Malaysian scholars undertake 3-6 months of research/lecturing at American universities during the academic year (August through June).

The program provides opportunities for Malaysian academics to develop or update their research through interaction with distinguished counterparts in the United States. By providing a mechanism and support for meeting and interacting with the best of American scholars, the program seeks to promote dialogue on subjects of mutual interest to Malaysia and the United States.

While these grants are typically research-focused, applicants who are prepared to add a lecturing component to their proposals are particularly encouraged to apply. Further, all applicants will be asked to develop strategies for sharing Malaysian culture with social, civic and other groups while in the United States.

The Malaysian Fulbright Scholar Program will augment the privileges normally accorded by the home institution to its staff members on sabbatical or other leaves, as well as soliciting the cooperation of the U.S. host institutions which may invite grantees to conduct research/lecturing using their facilities.


We would like to give our most heartfelt congratulations to Associate Professor Dr. Zul Ilham Zulkiflee Lubes on being selected as the Fulbright Malaysian Scholar Program for FY2022-2023 College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), Cornell University, United States of America.

Congratulations to you for earning a place at this prestigious event. Thank you for serving as a shining example of our university’s alumni and helping inspire a new generation of thinkers and scholars. We wish you all the best and to have a fruitful year.
