Scholarships have always helped people to attain their academic and career goals. One of the pioneer scholarships in the world is the Fulbright scholarship which promises its winners a fully-funded study. Therefore, this weekly digest of Youth Time Magazine brings the list of ongoing fully-funded Fulbright scholarships. 

But before that, let us have some knowledge about Fulbright Scholarships. 

 

About Fulbright

Fulbright scholarships are educational awards offered as part of an international scholarship exchange program. The program’s goal is to enhance the meeting of minds between citizens of the United States and other nations via educational and cultural exchange. It was initiated by Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright and continued by the Fulbright Act of 1946. The Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, often known as the Fulbright-Hays Act, unified and strengthened the program. Fulbright programs are founded on a series of bilateral diplomatic agreements that lay ultimate responsibility for operations with the United States Department of State. Overseas management, on the other hand, is delegated to educational foundations in which member states and their academic communities are involved; some other governments contribute to the program’s expenditures along with the U.S. government.
