The Fulbright Program has two dimensions. The first one is purely practical: we finance the study visits of Polish students, researchers and academic teachers to the U.S. and support their promising projects. The other one is ideological: we believe that the exchange of knowledge and skills serves an even greater purpose than the advancement of learning. According to the vision of the initiator of the Program, the American Senator J. William Fulbright, it is a tool for building dialogue and peaceful relations between nations. By bringing together the academic circles of different countries, we bring together whole societies.
Since the program works in two directions, U.S. researchers and experts have the opportunity to study or teach in Poland. As a result, many Polish academic and educational institutions, as well as non-governmental organizations, have the chance to invite specialists and lecturers from the U.S. to work with them on their projects.
