The Fulbright Program was created in 1946 by one of the senators of the United States William Fulbright. It is one of the most prestigious programs around the world that provides grants for international postgraduate students. A number of students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists participate in this program every year. The Fulbright provides grants for people who achieved success in a certain science.

Students have a possibility to study or to conduct a research in the university of any country that participates in the program. Students should chose the country and the university, discuss the project with the faculty or monitor, design a proposal and prepare supplemental materials.
Fulbright English Teaching Grants. The host country usually provides this granting program. The types of the grant proposals also vary depending on the country's demands.
