Fulbright is a scholarship and exchange program created in 1946 to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through the medium of educational and cultural exchange.
More than sixty years later, the Fulbright Program has come to represent the gold standard in academic exchange and is frequently used as a measure of academic excellence, intellectual integrity, and social diversity.
The Canada – U.S. Fulbright Program (aka Fulbright Canada) was introduced in 1990. Since that time, we have supported more than one thousand outstanding students and scholars.
Fulbright Canada is supported by both Governments, by the university community, and by a number of private sector partners. Fulbright Canada is committed to nurturing and directing the power of human knowledge, and to supporting future leaders who can and will contribute directly to solving the most pressing issues and questions of our time.
