The Fulbright Program for U.S. Students is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for United States students, scholars and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide. The Fulbright was 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 is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program operates in more than 140 countries worldwide and grants are available in all fields of study.
