The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Government’s flagship international education exchange program and is supported by the people of the United States and partner countries around the world. Since 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 318,000 participants from over 155 countries with the opportunity to study, teach, and conduct research; exchange ideas; and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers fellowships abroad for one academic year to graduating college seniors, graduate students, young professionals, scientists and artists. Program participants pursue graduate or professional study, advanced research, or English teaching in elementary and secondary schools or universities. Each year, approximately 1,900 Americans traveling to more than 140 countries receive support from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program seeks applications from highly motivated, open-minded individuals in any academic field and from any background. Fulbright candidates should be flexible self-starters with a strong interest in pro­moting international mutual understanding. Above all, they should be capable of contributing to, and benefiting from, an intensive cultural exchange program. For more information visit, www.eca.state.gov/Fulbright
