The Binational Programs

Introduction / Sources / History / Binational Programs / Board of Foreign Scholarships / Cooperating Agencies / Anniversaries / Grantees

Binational foundations, also called commissions, are created by executive agreement between the United States and participating countries to administer the Fulbright Program abroad. They are responsible for screening local candidates for grants, selecting qualified local educational institutions for participation in the program, planning educational exchange projects, and supervising incoming American grantees. The U.S. embassy or consulate performs these functions in countries where there are no commissions or foundations.
