The J. W. Fulbright Commission is a bilateral organization for educational, research and cultural exchanges between the United States and the Slovak Republic. The Commission services include grant programs and advising and information services.

 

Each year the Fulbright Commission awards up to 15 grants to U.S.students and professionals in various programs. The grants are administered in accordance with worldvide regulations which are guided by principles of open competition, academic excellence and professional promise.

 

The Commission also cooperates with other institutions on grant programs outside the scope of the Fulbright Program but maintaining its principles.

 

Essential part of the Commission is its Advising Center, which offers objective, unbiased information about the full range of higher education and other study opportunities in the United States and in the Slovak Republic. The center cooperates with the worldwide educational advising network of the U. S. Department of State called EducationUSA.
