The association, based in Washington, D.C. and offering competitive grants through the Fulbright Program since 1946, has granted support for overseas research and study for individuals in a variety of disciplines, working in cooperation with host universities in Arizona. Educational and social activities are held for both Fulbright Alumni and inbound international Fulbrighters.
