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).
