The Fulbright Program is the flagship international academic exchange program sponsored by the United States Government. Fulbright was founded in 1946 with an ambitious goal—to increase mutual understanding and support friendly and peaceful relations between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Led by the U.S. Government in partnership with more than 160 countries worldwide, Fulbright offers an expansive suite of life-changing international academic and cultural exchange opportunities. Learn more about the Fulbright’s administration, funding, policies, and history.
Fulbright certainly embodies this philosophy of doing interesting and important and impactful work, but also making sure that you share that work with other people.
