FY 2017 Fulbright Scholar Program

The Fulbright Scholar Program is a major component of the overall Fulbright Program.

For 70 years, the core Fulbright U. S. and Visiting Scholar Programs have offered awards for college and university faculty, including early career scholars, and for non-academic professionals (such as attorneys,


artists, journalists, and business professionals), to lecture and conduct research abroad.

More than 100,000 U. S. and visiting (non-U.S.) scholars and professionals have participated in these exchanges since the Fulbright Program's inception in 194 6. The core Fulbright Scholar Program currently sends, each year, approximately 810 U. S. scholars and professionals abroad to lecture, conduct research, and provide academic consulting at overseas institutions.

Reciprocally, the program brings approximately 860 visiting scholars from more than 130 countries to the United States for similar activities hosted primarily, but not exclusively, at U. S. colleges and universities.

In addition, approximately 245 scholars, both U. S. and visiting, participate in special regional and junior faculty short-term programs.
