Faculty Fulbright Program Information

Established in 1946, the Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. The program provides funding for scholars and professionals to engage in research, scholarly, and creative activities around the world.  Being a Fulbright scholar helps to enhance your career and reputation, while giving you a chance to travel to another country.

Each year TCU faculty and students contribute to and participate in many Fulbright programs. You could be next.  To find out about the opportunities available visit:
