International - Fulbright Program


Fulbright creates connections in a complex and changing world, offering programs for passionate and accomplished students, scholars, artists, teachers, and professionals of all backgrounds. These Fulbrighters enrich their educations, advance their careers—and make meaningful contributions abroad and at home. Upon returning to their home countries, institutions, or classrooms, they share their stories and often continue the work they started abroad—and join thousands of alumni serving as leaders across the globe.

For more than 70 years, we’ve believed that by living and learning together with people of different cultures, we can shape a more positive vision of 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.

America’s flagship international exchange program, Fulbright, is managed globally in collaboration with 49 unique binational Fulbright Commissions and 110+ U.S. embassies. Through our unique international educational and cultural exchange programs, Fulbright’s diverse and dynamic network of scholars, alumni, and globe partners fosters mutual understanding between the United States and partner nations, shares knowledge across communities, and improves lives around the world.

One connection at a time, Fulbright brings people closer together and moves nations closer to a more peaceful world.
