The Fulbright Commission

aim to foster cultural understanding through educational exchange in two ways: our prestigious grant program and our EducationUSA advising service.

The Danish-American Fulbright Commission is based on a bi-national treaty from 1951. It is publically funded by the Danish and the American states, and the American Ambassador to Denmark is honorary chair of the Commission Board. The Fulbright Commission offers grants to both Americans to Denmark and Danes to the USA.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. In Denmark, the Fulbright program is carried out by the Danish-American Fulbright Commission, and the work is based on a binational agreement and funded by both the Danish and U.S. government. Danes on Fulbright grants always comment on how highly regarded the Fulbright Program is in the States, and how being a Fulbright grantee really opened doors and added a lot of prestige to their projects and CVS.

This homepage is divided in different parts with information relevant for Danes or Americans. As a Dane, you should therefore go to our Danish site.
