Teachers College Fulbright Program Advisor: Professor John Allegrante

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government offering opportunities for U.S. students, teachers, professionals, and scholars to study, teach, lecture, and conduct research in more than 160 countries, and to their foreign counterparts to engage in similar activities in the United States. Established by the U.S. Congress in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright Program was created 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." More than 360,000 “Fulbrighters” have participated in the Program since its inception 70 years ago. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 8,000 grants annually and currently operates in over 160 countries worldwide.
