Recipients of Fulbright Specialist awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement, demonstrated leadership in their field, and their potential to foster long-term cooperation between institutions in the U.S. and abroad. 

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to build lasting connections between the people of the  United States and the people of other countries.

The Fulbright Program is funded through an  annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State.

Participating governments and host institutions, corporations, and foundations around the world also provide  direct and indirect support to the Program, which operates in over 160 countries worldwide.  

Since its establishment in 1946, the Fulbright Program has given more than 400,000 students,  scholars, teachers, artists, and scientists the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research,  exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Fulbrighters address critical global issues in all disciplines, while building relationships, knowledge, and leadership in support of the long-term interests of the United States.

Fulbright  alumni have achieved distinction in many fields, including 60 who have been awarded the Nobel  Prize, 88 who have received Pulitzer Prizes, and 39 who have served as a head of state or government.
