Fulbright is one of several United States Cultural Exchange Programs to improve intercultural relations, intercultural competence and cultural diplomacy, between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, skills, and knowledge. Via the program, competitively-selected students of other countries may receive scholarships or grants to study, conduct research, teach, or exercise their talents in the United States. The program was founded by the United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946 and is considered to be one of the most widely recognized and prestigious scholarships in the world. The program provides approximately 8,000 grants annually – roughly 1,600 to U.S. students, 1,200 to U.S. scholars, 4,000 to foreign students, 900 to foreign visiting scholars, and several hundred to teachers and professionals.

International students who want to study in the USA should apply for the scholarship in their home country and after a long process, if accepted, they can pursue a Masters or PhD program in the United States.

The Fulbright Program has the commissions in 49 of the over 160 countries with which it has bilateral partnerships. These foundations are funded jointly by the U.S. and partner governments.
