Office of Academic Exchanges


The Office of Academic Exchange Programs plans, develops, administers and monitors several major exchange activities including the: Fulbright Program, Global Undergraduate Exchange Program, and Study of the United States Institutes. The office also coordinates the annual program budget, promotes and consults on academic exchange programs and works with other government and private sponsors of academic exchange programs.

The office is divided into seven branches and a front office.  The front office oversees the branches and coordinates global program initiatives and public affairs.  Six of the branches are organized by world region: Sub-Saharan Africa, East Asia and Pacific, Europe and Eurasia, Near East Asia, South and Central Asia and the Western Hemisphere.  The remaining branch is organized by the programmatic theme, Study of the United States.
