The Fulbright Scholarship was created by the US Congress in 1946,
after World War II, to foster mutual understanding among nations
through educational and cultural exchanges. Today the Fulbright
program enables students, artists, and other professionals to
benefit from unique resources in every corner of the world.
Participating governments and host institutions in foreign
countries, and in the US, also contribute financially through
cost-sharing and indirect support, e.g., through salary
supplements, tuition waivers, and university housing.
