“Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing as no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international relations” – J. William Fulbright
Led by the United States government in partnership with more than 160 countries worldwide, the Fulbright Program offers international educational and cultural exchange programs for passionate and accomplished students, scholars, artists, teachers, and professionals of all backgrounds to study, teach or pursue important research.
The Fulbright Program is recognized globally as one of the most prestigious educational and cultural exchange programs, being one of the largest and most significant movements of scholars across the world, offering diverse opportunities in over 155 countries, funding approximately 8,000 exchanges each year.
MACEE offers a range of exchange awards for Malaysians and Americans wanting to study, research, teach or share their expertise in each other’s country. Each year approximately 130 Fulbright grantees participate in MACEE-facilitated exchanges between Malaysia and the U.S.
EducationUSA Advising Centers in Malaysia have been hosted by the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE) since the 1970s. EducationUSA Centers are supported by the U.S. Department of State. Malaysia has centers in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
EducationUSA is a network of hundreds of advising centers in 170 countries where students and parents find accurate, comprehensive, and current information about how to apply to accredited U.S. colleges and universities. Advisers are well trained and highly experienced. They guide students from the familiarization and searching stage all the way to their departure for the USA. Advisers maintain ties with United States university representatives and staff, current international students, and returning alumni. Advising services help students understand the U.S. higher education system and prepare strong university applications.
We believe students will be better prepared to succeed if they are actively involved in researching, selecting, and applying to the schools of their choice. Advisers are pleased to guide students each step of the way.
Studying in the United States provides international students an outstanding education and also the self-confidence, friendships, professional contacts, cultural experiences, and English proficiency to benefit their careers and daily lives.
Fulbright Alumni Association of Malaysia was formed in 1998. The nascent Alumni was first mooted on April 12th 1996 and formally registered in mid-1997. It seeks to galvanise the vast and varied interests of the Malaysian and U.S. Fulbright community in furtherance of the famed Fulbright vision…
The essence of the intercultural education is the acquisition of empathy, the ability to see the world as the others see it, and to allow for the possibility that others may see it more accurately…”
J. William Fulbright
