ABOUT FULBRIGHT

“International educational exchange is the most significant current project designed to continue the process of humanizing mankind to the point, we would hope, that men can learn to live in peace — eventually even to cooperate in constructive activities rather than compete in a mindless contest of mutual destruction…. We must try to expand the boundaries of human wisdom, empathy and perception, and there is no way of doing that except through education.

Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing as no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international relations. Man’s capacity for decent behavior seems to vary directly with his perception of others as individual humans with human motives and feelings, whereas his capacity for barbarism seems related to his perception of an adversary in abstract terms, as the embodiment, that is, of some evil design or ideology.

FULBRIGHT GRANTS FOR AMERICAN

To date, Malaysia’s Fulbright program has seen over a thousand citizens of both nationas participating in the exceptional academic endeavours offered by Fulbright. Since our inception in 1963, over 750 Malaysians have traveled to the United States with over 400 Americans coming over to Malaysia. This year, the Malaysia’s Fulbright program is committed to sending and receiving more Malaysians and American alike across borders to further promote educational exchanges. Click on the menu to the right to browse the current and past Malaysian and American Fulbrighters.
