The Program Fulbright was founded in the US in 1946 by American Senator J. William Fulbright, who believed that his initiative will play a fundamental role in building lasting peace in the world after the end of World War II. For the past 69 years, this Program has made up the groundwork of American foreign policy. The main aim of the Program is strengthening peace and understanding through an educational exchange between the US and other countries. At present, the Program operates in over 155 countries, and from its beginning, over 325 thousand fellows from all over the world have taken advantage of this educational exchange. Over 8 thousand scholarships are granted every year. The Fulbright Program has been present in Poland since 1959.
