Fulbright Programs for Americans
The Fulbright Program in Korea seeks to build mutual understanding and to share knowledge across communities while enhancing the lives of grantees. As part of the United States Government’s flagship international exchange program, Fulbright grantees join a global network striving to promote a more peaceful world. In the process, grantees enrich educations, advance careers, and make meaningful contributions to the communities, and the world, in which they live.
Fulbright Korea offers awards across approximately nine different categories for American scholars and students. Grants are awarded based on the principles of open competition and individual merit, irrespective of an applicant’s institutional affiliation, geographic location, or demographic background. Fulbright Korea seeks to create a welcoming environment for grantees of all backgrounds, identities, and orientations.
Each year, approximately 150 American Fulbright grantees to Korea take part in educational and cultural exchange through lecturing, teaching, research, graduate studies, and seminars. They become part of a global network of nearly 400,000 Fulbright exchange participants and alumni.
