Fulbright Legacy

Fulbrighters are valuable contributors to an exchange of knowledge, skills, ideas, and mutual understanding.

The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas and is sponsored by the United States Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). Approximately 300,000 "Fulbrighters," 114,000 from the United States and 186,000 from other countries, have participated in the program since its inception. It continues to award approximately 8,000 new grants annually and currently operates in more than 155 countries worldwide.

We invite you to meet more of UD's Fulbright Scholars.
