The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides funding for one academic year of study, research, or assistant teaching abroad. The program is sponsored by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Financial support is provided by an annual appropriation from Congress to the Department of State, with significant contributions from participating governments and host institutions.
