The U.S. Fulbright Program was proposed by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1945 and signed into law by President Truman in 1946, following the end of WWII.  The idea behind the program was to promote mutual understanding between peoples of the United States and other countries in the hope that another World War would never happen again.
The Fulbright program has six programs designed for U.S. Scholars, four for Non-U.S. Scholars and five programs for U.S. Institutions. Each program has a separate mission and deadline date; the most popular program for the U.S. faculty is the Core Fulbright Scholar Program which opens on February 1 and closes on August 1 of each year.
Public Partnership & Outreach offers a Fulbright Scholar Workshop in early March along with one-on-one coaching at any time.  Faculty interested in attending the workshop or finding out more information can contact Traci Lacy at 979.845.3087 or by email at
