From the personal to the professional, Fulbright creates lasting, meaningful connections in a complex and changing world. The relationships Fulbrighters build foster mutual understanding between the United States and people from around the world, advance knowledge across communities, and improve lives.
In a changing world, Fulbright's mission is more important than ever. We aim to build mutual understanding and stronger communities in the U.S. and across the world. By living and learning together in diverse communities, Fulbrighters build new connections, forming critical linkages and a better understanding of other perspectives. Fulbrighters are critical in helping carry positive change into the future- one connection at a time.
Fulbright Foreign Students teach Americans about their cultures, enrich their education, advance their careers, and contribute to a more peaceful world. During their Fulbright program, all students participate in community service to give back to their host communities, build a global network, and increase their skillsets so once they return home, they can create positive impact and change in their home communities.
The stories below are just a selection of powerful, real stories from our current students and alumni who create lasting connections for a more peaceful world. To read more stories, please visit our Medium page.
