Created by treaty on 22 September 1948, the US-UK Educational Commission (Fulbright Commission) fosters mutual cultural understanding through educational exchange between both nations. We fulfil this mission in two ways: through our prestigious Fulbright Awards Programme and EducationUSA advisory service.
The US-UK Fulbright Commission has a distinguished history built on the legacy of the late Senator J William Fulbright. The global Fulbright Programme is one of the most prestigious awards programmes world-wide operating in over 150 countries, with over 300,000 alumni. Approximately 15,000 UK nationals have studied in the US and over 12,000 US nationals in the UK on our educational exchange programmes. An additional 70,000 students, parents and advisors are served each year by our advisory service through our online information about US study, events and enquiries.
The Commission is funded partially by the UK and US government, with additional support coming from a variety of individual and institutional partners. The work of the Commission is governed by a Board of Commissioners and carried out by a small team of full time staff and participants in our internship programme.
