A Message from Congress

The United States Congress created the Fulbright Program in 1946, and its members have sustained that support for the past 75 years. Today, thanks to Congress, Fulbright continues to develop future leaders representing the talent and diversity of all U.S. states and U.S. territories, and of partner countries around the world.
