Our institutional members advance their internationalization strategies by partnering with the Fulbright Association.

Join today

The Fulbright Program is critical to your international strategy, as it is to all of American higher education. For outbound students and scholars, it provides life-changing opportunities for teaching and research in 165 countries.  International grantees bring expertise and language skills that strengthen every campus and provide needed financial resources.

We invite you to join the Fulbright Association to secure the future of Fulbright and magnify its impact on your campus and community.

The Association is the unified, grassroots voice for securing funding for the Program from Congress.  Our advocacy work harnesses the power of 100,000 American alumni and of 300 higher education institutions who benefit from continued funding.

Working through our network of chapters and local alumni, institutional members can raise the profile of the Fulbright, driving more successful applications through on-campus programs and community outreach. Through Fulbright in the Classroom, Fulbrighters share their experiences with local school children.  Institutions also partner with local chapters to host Fulbright Forums on key international issues.

Minority-Serving Institutions, HBCUs, & community colleges receive a discount to join our network.  Contact us at info@fulbright.org or call 202-775-0725.
