The Fulbright Program fosters cultural exchanges between Italy and the United States in all fields including sciences, humanities, social sciences and the arts.
It promotes study, research and teaching in Italy and the United States through scholarships for Italian and US citizens.
The first agreement between the US Government and the Italian Government was signed on December 18, 1948. Since then, about 8,000 Italian and American fellows have participated in the Fulbright Program. Many Fulbrighters on both sides of the Atlantic now hold positions of major academic and professional significance.
The Program is funded by the U.S. and the Italian Governments, with complementary financial support coming from partner universities, organizations and institutions of both the private and public sector. The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs coordinate the management of the Program.
