On August 1, 1946, President Truman signed the Fulbright Act authorizing the Fulbright Program for the exchange of teachers, students, professors, and research scholars between the United States and participating countries.
While the program has changed since inception (and continues to change), it remains the U.S. Government’s flagship international educational exchange program promoting global mutual understanding, leadership, and professional development, while building lifelong networks.
