The flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, widely known as the Fulbright Program, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and those of other countries. ith this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided more than !"",""" participants#chosen for their leadership potential#with the opportunity to observe each other$s political, economic and cultural institutions, exchange ideas and embark on %oint ventures of importance to the general welfare of the world. The Fulbright Program was established in &'() under legislation introduced by former Senator *. illiam Fulbright of +rkansas. The Fulbright Program is administered by the ,ureau of -ducational and .ultural +ffairs of the United States /epartment of State. Since the establishment of the Program, (),0"" Fulbright 1isiting Scholars have conducted research or taught in U.S. universities, and more than (2,3"" Fulbright U.S. Scholars have engaged in similar activities abroad. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 0"" grants to 1isiting Scholars each year. .urrently, the Program operates in over &22 countries worldwide. The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the United States .ongress to the /epartment of State. Participating governments and host institutions in foreign countries and in the United States also contribute financially through cost4sharing and indirect support, such as salary supplements, tuition waivers and university housing. The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB), composed of &3 educational and public leaders appointed by the President of the United States, formulates policy for the administration of the Program, establishes criteria for the selection of candidates and approves candidates nominated for awards. The United States Department of State, Bureau of ducational and !ultural "ffairs, develops policies to assure fulfillment of the purposes of the Program and administers it with the assistance of educational commissions and foundations in 2" countries that have binational agreements with the United States for continuing exchange programs, U.S. -mbassies in '" other countries and a number of cooperating agencies in the United States. Binational commissions and foundations draw up the annual program plan for exchanges, in consultation with participating universities and organi5ations in the host country. They also screen, interview, and recommend to the FS, 6ualified candidates for student and faculty grants under their exchange programs. 7n a country without a commission or foundation, the Public +ffairs Section of the U.S. -mbassy develops the program and supervises it locally. The !ouncil for #nternational $change of Scholars (!# S), under a cooperative agreement with the /epartment of State, administers the Fulbright Scholar Program for faculty and professionals. .7-S is a division of the 7nstitute of 7nternational -ducation 877-9 and has close working relationships with the ma%or disciplinary bodies in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. /uring the terms of their grants in the United States, Fulbright lecturers and researchers are assisted by .7-S.
