“The essence of intercultural education is the acquisition of empathy–the ability to see the world as others see it, and to allow for the possibility that others may see something we have failed to see, or may see it more accurately. The simple purpose of the exchange program…is to erode the culturally rooted mistrust that sets nations against one another. The exchange program is not a panacea but an avenue of hope.”

– Senator J William Fulbright

Created by treaty on 22 September 1948, the US-UK Fulbright Commission fosters mutual cultural understanding through educational exchange between both nations. Its fulfil this mission in two ways: through its prestigious Fulbright Awards Programme and EducationUSA Advisory Services.
