"Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing as no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international relations."
- J. William Fulbright, 1983

Since its establishment in 1946 by Congress, the Fulbright Program has given more than 390,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists, and scientists the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
