Please join the U.S. Department of State in celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program with a live broadcast from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.
We hope you will be able to join us virtually to celebrate the accomplishments of the past 75 years and to look ahead to the exciting future of the U.S. government’s flagship program of educational and cultural exchange.
The event will include personal stories and performances by some of our most extraordinary alumni, including recent participants and those who have had long and distinguished careers. The celebration will highlight the Fulbright Program’s impact in five important areas: the environment; education; public service; science, technology, and public health; and the arts.
With 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.
