Fullbright Program

http://fulbright.state.gov/

Since its inaugural in the late 1940s, the Fulbright Program has been an integral part of U.S. foreign relations. Indeed, face-to-face exchanges have proven to be the single most effective means of engaging foreign publics while broadening dialogue between U.S. citizens and institutions and their counterparts abroad. In doing so, the Fulbright Program creates a context to provide a better understanding of U.S. views and values, promotes more effective binational cooperation and nurtures open-minded, thoughtful leaders, both in the U.S. and abroad, who can work together to address common concerns.

Whether the challenge is transforming conflict into dialogue, conducting medical research to end a modern-day plague, halting the trafficking of persons, or designing an efficient energy grid, today’s issues call for new voices, new ideas and new leaders. Even in a networked world of the Internet and satellite television, there is no substitute for personal interaction—what journalist Edward R. Murrow called “the last three feet of communication.” It is individuals, after all, not data streams, who must ultimately build the connections that in turn create lasting international partnerships.
