The Program Of J. William Fulbright was founded in 1946 to promote mutual consent between the American people and people from around the world. Today, the Fulbright program is one of the most recognized and prestigious programs in the world. Fulbright grants are awarded through an open competition. This contributes to the fair selection of the most deserving candidates and the achievement of the goal of this program, namely, to achieve mutual understanding and mutual benefit by contributing to the communities of not only the host country, but also the home country.

The largest part of Fulbright is the international student program, which funds foreigners to pursue a master's or doctorate degree in the United States. Each year, more than 4,000 students from 155 countries come to America for this program and receive fully paid scholarships and grants.
