“The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program of the U.S. government. For over 70 years, the Fulbright Program has supported cooperation for the development of science, culture, and interpersonal, as well as inter-institutional relations between the United States and over 160 countries. The task of the Program is not only to support the scientific community, but also to promote creative leadership. Thanks to the graduates of the Program, awareness and intercultural sensitivity are instilled in those people who directly decide about social order in the world”.
