The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational and cultural exchange program, creating connections in a complex and changing world. Led by the U.S. government in partnership with 160 countries worldwide, Fulbright builds lasting connections between peoples of the United States and people around the world, building mutual understanding between nations, advancing knowledge across communities, and improving lives around the world.
THE FULBRIGHT PROGRAM
For more than 70 years, since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has given hundreds of thousands of passionate and accomplished students, scholars, teachers, artists and professionals of all backgrounds and fields of study the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to important international problems. We believe that by living and learning together with people of different cultures, we can shape a more positive vision for our communities and our world. Our mission is vital: to forge lasting connections counter misunderstandings and help people and nations work together toward common goals.
Fulbrighters live and learn together with people of different countries and become part of a global network that fosters mutual understanding between nations, shares knowledge across communities, and create lasting connections to build a more peaceful world. Fulbright aims to enrich educations, advance careers, and make meaningful contributions. After they return home, they join thousands of alumni serving as leaders across the globe and in every field imaginable and share their stories to continue the work they started abroad. Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction in many areas and include 59 Nobel Prize recipients, 82 Pulitzer Prize winners, and 37 who have served as head of state or government.
