Fulbright Canada is an integral part of the worldwide Fulbright program. The Fulbright program, which operates in more than 150 countries, is managed by 50 binational Fulbright commissions. In Canada, the Fulbright Program is managed by the Foundation for Educational Exchange between Canada and the United States of America. In non-commission countries, the program is managed by the relevant US Embassy. Administrative support for the Fulbright program is provided by the IIE and the CIES, U.S.-based cooperating agencies.
In addition, Fulbright alumni associations exist in 71 countries around the world. In the United States, the Fulbright Association represents some 125,000 U.S. alumni of the Fulbright Program.
