Global Wales Fulbright Awards

The Fulbright awards foster mutual understanding and people-to-people connections. In the 21st century, Fulbrighters address critical priorities in all global areas while building relationships, knowledge, and leadership in support of the long-term interests of the United States and Wales. Upon returning to their home country, Fulbrighters share their stories and experiences and often engage in follow-on projects or continue the work they started abroad. This engagement creates a multiplier effect that leads to lifelong collaborations between communities.
