Fulbright (USA)

The German-American Fulbright Program implements Senator J. William Fulbright's visionary concept: The promotion of mutual understanding between our two countries through academic and bicultural exchange.

The Fulbright Program has international outreach, providing exchanges between the United States and over 160 countries and territories worldwide. The largest and most varied of the Fulbright programs worldwide, the German-American Fulbright Program has sponsored over 45,000 Germans and Americans since its inception in 1952.

The focus of the program is student exchange. It is complemented by academic year programs for professors, teachers, teaching assistants, and journalists; summer internship programs for students; and seminars for experts in university administration and German and American Studies.

The Fulbright Commission is a binational board. The German-American program is administered by the Secretariat located in Berlin, Germany; the Commission's partner on the American side is the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in the U.S. Department of State.

Only students with German nationality can apply for the German-American program with the destination USA. Students with German-US nationality cannot participate in the program. That is why all further information on the program is provided in the German language.

Das Fulbright-Programm vergibt sowohl Voll- und Teilstipendien als auch Reisestipendien für deutsche Studierende und Graduierte, die einen Studienaufenthalt in den USA absolvieren möchten (die deutsch-amerikanische Staatsbürgerschaft führt zum Ausschluss).
