Since its inception more than fifty years ago 255,000 “Fulbrighters,” 96,400 from the United States and 158,600 from other countries, have participated in the Fulbright Program. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 4,500 new grants annually. Being a Fulbright grantee is a unique and life-changing experience.
