The Fulbright Program in Brief

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United
States and the people of other countries. The Fulbright Program has provided approximately 318,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to
study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Fulbright Awards

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program Study/Research Award grants scholarships to U.S.
graduating seniors, graduate students, young professionals, scientists and artists selected through a
national, merit-based competition for study and research abroad. Academic fields include the social
sciences, humanities, arts and the sciences. The Program emphasizes leadership development.

The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program places U.S. students, primarily new
college graduates, as English teaching assistants in schools or universities overseas, where they
increase foreign students’ English language abilities and knowledge of the United States. They are
integrated in the host community, which improves their own foreign language skills and knowledge of
the host country. ETAs also pursue individual study/research plans in addition to their teaching
