Abstract:

A Fulbright Scholarship is known worldwide as an honor and a boon to international relations. For 46 years, more than 180,000 Americans and nationals of 130 countries have studied, taught, and researched in one another's lands. How and why was this pathbreaking program created? What is the future for this educational and cross-cultural exchange? In answer to these questions, Leonard Sussman provokes a discussion of the benefits and detriments of the Fulbright program as he seeks to use its method and philosophy to influence national, international, and cultural policy.
