Fulbright Program

The Fulbright Program, including the Fulbright-Hays Program, is one of several United States Cultural Exchange programs with the goal to improve intercultural relations, cultural diplomacy, and intercultural competence between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.

Fulbright Student Program

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers research, study and teaching opportunities in over 140 countries to recent graduates and graduate students who are U.S. citizens, allowing them a year-long opportunity to pursue their academic and artistic interests in a foreign country. A network of over 1,650 volunteer Fulbright Program Advisers on campuses nationwide assist in the recruitment and advisement of applicants.
