The Fulbright Program, funded by Congress through the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is the flagship international educational exchange program designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Participating governments, host institutions, and corporations and foundations in the United States and abroad also provide support.
Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields. The program operates in more than 155 countries.
