What is Fulbright?

The Fulbright Program is the US government’s flagship international educational and cultural exchange program, creating connections in a complex and changing world. Since its inception in 1946, Fulbright’s unique collaboration between the United States and partner countries has enabled dedicated and accomplished students, scholars, and professionals to make a difference in countries around the world. Fulbrighters enrich their educations, advance their careers, and make meaningful contributions to communities abroad and at home. 

The purpose of the Fulbright Program is threefold:

  1. Promote mutual understanding that helps people and nations work together towards a common goal
  2. Expand, through this understanding, educational and cultural exchange programs
  3. Create lasting connections among a global network that leads to lifelong collaborations

Who Can Apply?

Fulbright offers programs for passionate and accomplished students, scholars, artists, teachers and professionals to study, teach, or conduct research in over 160 countries around the world.
