Fulbright Australian-American Fulbright Commission

Fulbright Scholars

The Australian-American Fulbright Commission promotes education and cultural exchange between Australia and the United States in order to enhance mutual understanding and strengthen relations between the two countries. Since 1952, staff and students, initially from the New England University College (NEUC) and then from UNE, have undertaken these prestigious programs in the US, and UNE has benefitted from hosting scholars from the US.
