Fulbright Program

Before our winter break, my principal emailed me the information for the Fulbright Scholarship Program of the US Department of State; attached was an application and a message that said:
" I would like to recommend you for this program"...

My reply was, "Am I qualified?"...there is only one way to know. Should I apply? There's nothing to lose if I do!
What is this program?
The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the the United States Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA).

Approximately 294,000 "Fulbrighters," 111,000 from the United States and 183,000 from other countries, have participated in the Program since its inception over sixty years ago. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 7,500 new grants annually.

Currently, the Fulbright Program operates in over 155 countries worldwide.
What Do Fulbrighters Do?

Fulbrighters are more than students, scholars and teachers. They are valuable contributors to the exchange of knowledge, skills, ideas and mutual understanding. Learn More

Why Is the Fulbright Program Unique?

The Fulbright Program is based on binational partnerships and open, merit-based competition. Fulbrighters are offered unique opportunities for enrichment and leadership development as well as access to facilities and a vast community of alumni. Learn More
