Fulbright Association

About Fulbright Association

Forged in our shared transformational Fulbright experiences, the Fulbright Association is an independent non-profit organization that seeks to build upon and enhance the Fulbright international exchange experience by promoting scholarship, collaborative engagement, and cultural diplomacy throughout the global community.

Established on February 27, 1977, the Fulbright Association is the official U.S. alumni organization of the Fulbright Program, representing 140,000 U.S. alumni – 70 years of Fulbrighters since the program’s inception – and friends of international education. We support a thriving alumni community that helps increase visibility for the Fulbright effect and helps preserve Fulbright exchanges for future generations.

Our mission is to engage current and former Fulbright exchange participants in lifelong experiences that advance people-to-people understanding, international diplomacy and service in communities around the world.
