WKU will celebrate the second annual Fulbright Week April 3-7 with events for prospective students and faculty.
The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program seeking to increase mutual understanding between Americans and the people of other countries. Established in 1946 by U.S. Sen. J. William Fulbright and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Program awards approximately 8,000 grants annually in more than 160 countries.
Sponsored by the Office of International Programs and the Office of Scholar Development, the purpose of Fulbright Week is to raise awareness of opportunities through two programs falling under the umbrella of the Fulbright Program: the Fulbright Scholar Program and the U.S. Student Program.
