Thank You for Your Interest.
Fulbright partners support the very best Australian and U.S. researchers as they develop cures for cancer or bring hearing to the deaf; as they develop innovative ideas to address food bio-security or global environmental issues, or as they help us understand who we are are through the humanities and creative arts.
As a non-profit organisation, sponsored by the United States and Australian governments, we rely on our institutional and business partners, private bequests and endowments. This support enables us to continue to meet our goals, and forge new ground, in developing long-lasting, productive bilateral partnerships and connections. In turn, our partners and sponsors value being a part of the Fulbright Commission’s strong network of national, regional and global collaborations.
We thank you for your interest in supporting the Fulbright community and joining in the exchange of ideas between Australia and the United States.
We are most grateful to our alumni who continue to express their gratitude for the opportunities they gained during their Fulbright experience through our Alumni giving channels.
Establish an Endowment
In 2015 the Australian Government’s Department of Indigenous Affairs endowed a grant of $1 million to the Fulbright Commission to fund a Fulbright Indigenous Scholarship to be awarded each year in perpetuity. This endowment reflects the enduring relationship between the Australian Government and the Commission and negates the need for the Fulbright Commission to renegotiate new funding arrangements for our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander scholarships.
Support the Fulbright Professional Coral Sea Scholarship (Business/Industry)
On the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea in 1992, the Australia-United States Coral Sea Commemorative Council established this scholarship fund, with donations from Ambassador Mel Sembler, former U.S. Ambassador to Australia, and a group of Australian and U.S. companies, in recognition of “the friendship, cooperation and mutual respect which has developed between the United States and Australia since the battle”.
