The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board was established by Congress for the purpose of supervising the Fulbright Program and certain programs authorized by the Fulbright-Hays Act and for the purpose of selecting students, scholars, teachers, trainees, and other persons to participate in the educational exchange programs.

Appointed by the President of the United States, the 12-member Board meets quarterly in Washington, D.C. The Board establishes worldwide policies and procedures for the Program and issues an annual report on the state of the Program. The Board maintains a close relationship with both the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and the executive directors of all the binational Fulbright Commissions. The office within ECA is headed by Executive Director Lisa Helling.[1]

It's in my estimation a labor of love because the outcome of what we do improves American relations with other countries of the world. We get to help achieve Senator Fulbright's objective of using diplomacy to promote peace. We are very proud of the hundreds of thousands of Fulbright grantees that have gone through this program and have become leaders in their own country, and leaders here at home. It has touched every state of our union. It is operating in 155 countries uninterrupted for 65 years. We're very proud of the far reach that this program has had over so many sectors of civil society. I was just in New Delhi and met with a number of Fulbrighters who were in the Arts and Culture field and what was extraordinary to me was the range of activities they've done from beginning cultural heritage management programs for Indian institutions, which hasn't existed before, to reclaiming some ancient traditions and styles of pottery making that were new. So, I think the breadth of Fulbright is staggering to me. These people are the best and the brightest. They're leaders; they're future leaders. They're future Nobel Prize winners. They're future government officials; future titans of industry and business. They're able to do on their program—through research and teaching and international exchange—the richness of that intellectual experience not only makes them better people but makes their contribution back to society that much more valuable.
