The Fulbright Program, the flagship international academic exchange program sponsored by the US government, has fostered mutual understanding between the United States and other countries since 1946.
The Fulbright Foreign Student Program brings citizens of other countries to the United States for study at US universities or other appropriate institutions and offers program participants insight into US society and values. Successful candidates receive up to three years of graduate-level studies at some of the finest higher learning institutions in the United States. The Embassy is now accepting applications for study commencing in 2023 – 2024.
The program provides awards to approximately 8,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists, and professionals each year from the United States and 160 countries. Fulbright is unique in its binationalism and noted for its merit-based selection process and academic prestige. Fulbrighters come from all backgrounds and are selected regardless of their race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, geographic location, socio-economic status, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
