Scholarization: the primary function of the Fulbright Commission in Ireland is to administer the Fulbright Program which was established in Ireland in 1957 to provide scholarships to Irish citizens to lecture, research or study in the United States and for the US citizens to lecture, research or study in Ireland. Since that time more than 1,600 Irish postgraduate students, academics and professionals have studied in top US colleges and research institutes and more than 600 US students and scholars have come to Ireland. According to one US Fulbrighter to Ireland, his Fulbright was

“truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and a priceless gift.”

The Fulbright Commission is committed to creating an interactive community of students, scholars, sponsors, supporters and staff to fulfill the Fulbright Program’s purpose to “increase mutual understanding” between the people of the United States and Ireland. We welcome your questions, suggestions and hope the information on our website will encourage your participation in our awards and activities.
