The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Senator J. William Fulbright envisioned an educational and cultural exchange program that would connect people and encourage them to learn about each others' cultures and values - that vision became the Fulbright Program.
Fulbright provides participants the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and administrators who are U.S. citizens are eligible to apply for Core Fulbright Scholar Program Awards, Fulbright International Education (IEA) seminars, and Fulbright Specialist Programs awards.

The Office of International Affairs holds periodic info sessions to share knowledge of Fulbright opportunities for faculty, administrators, and postdocs.
