ABOUT FULBRIGHT

HISTORY

The Fulbright program is the flagship program for international educational exchange for the U.S. government. Rooted in historical contexts of post-war 1945, the program promotes “mutual understanding between the people of the United States and people of other countries in the world”. In recent years, the Fulbright program has expanded to offer opportunities for scholars, administrative professionals and professionals to experience international educational exchange around the world.

THE EXPERIENCE

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.

AT THE UA

The UA is consistently a top-producing institution for Fulbright Scholars. Applications to Fulbright programs are facilitated by multiple offices across campus including, the Office of Global Initiatives, the Honors College, the Graduate College, and International Student Services. These offices regularly provide workshops and training on the Fulbright experience and how to submit applications.
