The Fulbright Program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars and faculty to pursue advanced study, conduct research and teach in schools and universities abroad. Established in 1946 and sponsored by the United States Department of State, this competitive program operates in more than 150 countries and awards grants in nearly all fields and disciplines.
