About Fulbright

Established in 1946 by Senator J.William Fulbright, the Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s most prestigious international educational exchange program designed to promote “mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries around the world.”  The Fulbright Program includes a number of different exchange programs for students, academics and professionals in order to conduct a variety of different educational activities. 

"International educational exchange is the most significant current project designed to continue the process of humanizing mankind to the point, we would hope, that men can learn to live in peace--eventually even to cooperate in constructive activities rather than compete in a mindless contest of mutual destruction....We must try to expand the boundaries of human wisdom, empathy and perception, and there is no way of doing that except through education."  --
