The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) sponsors enrichment seminars, gateway orientations, and workshops across the United States as part of its flagship Fulbright Program. These enrichment activities, an integral part of the Fulbright experience, benefit Fulbright foreign students and support the overall mission of the Fulbright Program – to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
The Fulbright Enrichment team at the Institute of International Education under the guidance of and in consultation with ECA, plans, develops and administers the Fulbright enrichment activities and programs. These enrichment activities are a benefit provided to Foreign Fulbrighters and serve to promote and support the Fulbright mission.
