Excellence in scholarship, diversity, and community service are the hallmarks of the Fulbright Program. The Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program encourages and promotes bi-national collaborative research and thoughtful public debate on topics that reflect the broad range of contemporary issues relevant to Canada, the United States, and the relationship between the two countries. The Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program operates on the principle of reciprocal exchange and provides the opportunity for outstanding students and scholars from Canada and the United States to embark on a residential academic exchange in the other country. By allowing our generation’s best and brightest to experience a different culture and to get exposed to new ideas, the program aims to bring a little more knowledge, reason and compassion into world affairs, thereby increasing the chance that nations will learn to live in peace and friendship.
