The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by then-Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Approximately 8,000 Fulbright grants are awarded each year. More than 300,000 “Fulbrighters” have participated in the program since its inception.
