What is the Fulbright program ?
380,000 alumni. 59 Nobel Prize laureates. 82 Pulitzer Prize winners. Heads of state and government.
The Fulbright program started in 1946 after the end of the Second World War through an initiative by Senator Fulbright from Arkansas. It has developed over the years through bilateral agreements between the US and partner countries, of which there are now 160.
Today, Fulbright is the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world, supported for more than half a century through an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress and by the people of partner nations.
