Background of the Fulbright Program | Deadline: Vary Per Program

 

 

Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas introduced the legislation that led to the creation of the Fulbright program in 1946. Whatever their vocation, Senator Fulbright envisioned a program that would encourage people to increase intercultural understanding and global collaboration. The Fulbright Program, which is run by the US government in collaboration with more than 160 nations worldwide, provides opportunities for accomplished and enthusiastic students, researchers, artists, teachers, and professionals from all backgrounds to study abroad, teach, or work on significant research and professional projects.
