The Fulbright program was established in 1946 and is administered by the Institute of International Education Council for International Exchange of Scholars. The program is designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries” and provides the opportunity to study, teach, and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
The Fulbright Scholars Program sends faculty from the U.S. abroad to lecture, conduct research, or participate in seminars. Faculty generally stay abroad anywhere from two months to a full academic year. This award is often taken in conjunction with research, development or sabbatical leave options. Arizona State University faculty Fulbright scholars have canvassed the world serving in different countries and institutions. ASU is recognized as one of the top producers of Fulbright Faculty Scholars. View ASU Fulbright membership.
