The United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF) announced the opening of its annual competition for Fulbright-Nehru and other Fulbright fellowships on Monday.

One of the most widely recognized and prestigious scholarships in the world, the Fulbright program offers students, teachers and professionals a chance to study, teach or exercise their talents in the United States.

Founded by the United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946, the program is funded jointly by the US Department of State and India's Ministry of External Affairs.

This year, the Fulbright program is celebrating its 75th anniversary. These many years, the program had been instrumental in forging lasting connections, counter misunderstandings, and help people and nations work together toward common goals.

More than 370,000 people have benefited from the program since it began; 60 Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes and 86 have won Pulitzer Prizes.

USIEF is now accepting applications from Indian citizens for the 2022-23 academic year.

Prospective applicants from Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, and the Union Territories of Lakshadweep Islands, Puducherry, and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands can write to usiefchennai@usief.org.in.
