The Fulbright Program fosters international educational exchange, building enduring connections between the U.S. and other nations.

Since its establishment in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided over 380,000 individuals - including students, scholars, teachers, artists, and professionals - with opportunities to study, teach, research, and collaborate internationally, addressing shared global challenges along the way.
