The Fulbright Program is a program of highly competitive, merit-based grants for international educational exchange for students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists, founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946. Under the Fulbright Program, competitively selected U.S. scholars are selected to conduct research, or exercise their talents abroad and citizens of other countries may qualify to do the same in the United States. The Fulbright Program is one of the most prestigious awards programs worldwide, operating in over 155 countries. Forty-three Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes and seventy-eight have won Pulitzer Prizes. More Nobel laureates are former Fulbright recipients than any other award program. The program was established to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.
