Did Barack Obama attend Columbia on a foreign student scholarship?

Not at all. This is an internet myth. President Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961, so he attended Columbia as a natural born US citizen; he received financial aid in the form of grants and student loans, and was never considered a foreign student because he was American by birth. It was his father, Barack Obama, Sr., who was from Kenya and studied in the US as a foreign exchange student.

Who is the father of President Obama?

President Barack H. Obama, II was named after his father, Barack H. Obama, Sr. who was from Kenya and was studying in the US as a foreign exchange student when he married the President's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. His mother was also named after her father, Stanley Armour Dunham, from Kansas.

Was Barack Obama ever a foreign exchange student?

No, there is no credible evidence of it. President Obama was born in Hawaii, spent much of his youth there, graduated from high school there, and attended American colleges (including Harvard Law School) as an American student. Sadly, there are a number of myths about the president on the internet, including some from the "Birthers," who refuse to believe that he is an American. But all of the reliable sources indicate he was never a foreign student. That said, there is sometimes some understandable confusion because of Barack Obama's father, who had the same name that the president has. It is Barack Obama Senior who was a foreign student: he came from Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he met Ann Dunham (the president's mom).
