Fulbright Program

Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing as no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international relations. - Senator J. William Fulbright

The Fulbright Program is one of the most prestigious exchange programmes in the world, established to increase the mutual understanding between the United States' population and other countries through the exchange of people, knowledge and skills.

With the Fulbright Program graduates, civil servants, professors and doctors can go on stays abroad.

The recommended candidates for Fulbright grants have a high academic performance, a convincing proposal for the project and/or a declaration of intentions, proved ability to lead and the flexibility and adaptability to interact with success with the receiving community abroad.

Also, Fulbright offer a free service on Academic Assistance, to guide all those who may be interested in preparing a stay in the United States, even though it may not be done through their programme.
