Alumni Groups and Directories of Grantees

The Fulbright Program began before there were computerized databases and the internet, and it is administered by 51 national commissions and dozens of other agencies and organizations.  As a result, there is no comprehensive directory of grantees.  Here are some sources of information on grantees. 

The directories mentioned above allow you to search by name, country, and subject area.  The data was accurate at the time of the grant, but many people have moved to new institutions.  To find an individual and their contact information, you often will need to do a supplementary search using Google or similar search engine.

Other programs named after Senator Fulbright:

The J.William & Harriet Fulbright Center seeks to promote world peace and nonviolent means of resolving conflicts through education, interaction, and engagement.  The Center is a new non-profit organization founded by Mr. Harriet Mayor Fulbright, wife of the late Senator Fulbright.

The J.William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences is the undergraduate program at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. It enrolls around 6,600 students in 19 departments and offers degrees in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences.

The Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP), located on the campus of the Economics University in Ho Chi Minh City, is managed by the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Each year the program offers 55-60 Vietnamese mid-level managers a 10-month curriculum on market economics, and runs additional short-term seminars.

National Fulbright Commissions

Fulbright binational commissions and foundations are non-profit organizations established to oversee the Fulbright Program abroad. Commissions propose annual country programs, which establish the numbers and categories of grants, based on requests from local institutions. There are currently 51 commissions worldwide, 41 of which are funded jointly by the United States and the host government. Each commission or foundation has a board composed of an equal number of Americans and citizens of the host country. In a country without a commission, the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy develops and supervises the Fulbright Program.

The US State Department maintains a worldwide list of addresses for Fulbright Binational Commissions and Foundations. For countries without a Fulbright Commission, please refer to the list of websites for U.S. Embassies and other Diplomatic Missions.

The Fulbright Academy Network

The Fulbright Academy is building a community of leaders in a broad range of science and technology-related fields. Our goal is to communicate opportunities and exciting developments in the scientific world, and our audience includes political decisionmakers, leading researchers, students, and the public.

We achieve this by linking some of the 125,000+ individuals who were honored to receive a Fulbright Scholarship in a science-related field.  We recognize that scientific innovation, business saavy other new developments are usually not solitary pursuits; therefore, our network also includes hosts of visiting Fulbrighters and their colleagues. (link to directories of scholars)

For the Academy, the terms "science & technology" encompass work being done in social, natural and life sciences, as well as related disciplines.  Fulbright grantees and alumni work in the following fields: Agriculture, Anthropology, Archaeology, Architecture, Astronomy, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Geography, Geology, Linguistics, Mathematics, Medical Sciences, Physics, Psychology, Social Studies, Sociology, Urban Planning, and Zoology. Fulbrighters also work in business, law, public administration, and teaching.  Academy members come from all of these disiplines as well as others.

The Academy is building community through our programs.  We organize conferences, forums and other face-to-face meetings.  We support relationships by working with institutional members and supporters.  And we build ties through the stories and discussion board on this website and by promoting work of individual Fulbrighters in our newsletter and in other print materials.
