Fulbright Scholar Program

Established in 1946 under legislation introduced by late Senator J. William Fulbright, the Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. The program is under the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
