Why Fulbright?

A Fulbright grant is unique. It opens doors.

Fulbright is without doubt one of the most recognized names in higher education due to the high calibre and merit of its grantees. Fulbright grantees are most often degree-seeking graduates or early-career professionals who wish to study or conduct research in the United States.

Following their academic program, they often return to their home country to take leadership positions, work at universities or in government service. Grantees are diverse in their fields of study, institutional affiliations, and backgrounds and each grantee is expected to provide in turn, invaluable contributions to the Fulbright program in Sweden and in the United States. As a key proponent for public diplomacy between the United States and Sweden, the Fulbright exchange provides Swedish and American citizens with the opportunity to study, teach, conduct research and share in the culture of their host country.
