The Fulbright program is designed to “increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of other countries…” Awardees are chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential and earn the opportunity to study and teach in each other’s countries, exchange ideas and develop joint solutions to address shared concerns. Approximately 1000 new grants are awarded annually to U.S. Citizens. Fulbright Grants provide transportation, tuition and maintenance for study abroad for one year. Besides the Fulbright grants for research, there are also Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships available. Over one hundred countries receive Fulbright scholars in all fields of study.
