The Fulbright Program is a world leader in international educational exchanges.
The mission of the program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through educational exchange.
The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright. Since its inception more than fifty years ago 255,000 "Fulbrighters," 96,400 from the United States and 158,600 from other countries, have participated in the Program. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 4,500 new grants annually.
Being a Fulbright grantee is a life changing experience. The Fulbright Program is not for everyone; it is only for those who are willing to take the challenge of becoming leaders of the new era.
