Fulbright Program

The Fulbright Program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, and university teaching worldwide. The Fulbright Program is supported by the U.S. Department of State.

Established in 1946 by the U.S. Congress to “enable the government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries,” the Fulbright program annually awards approximately six thousand grants, at a cost of more than $250 million. The program funds both American and foreign students, teachers, professionals, and scholars to study, teach, lecture, and conduct research in more than 150 countries and the United States. The Fulbright Program in Russia offers a variety of opportunities for both Americans and Russians interested in graduate study, lecturing, academic research, and other activities.
