Bulgarian-American Commission for Educational Exchange (Bulgarian Fulbright Commission)

The Bulgarian-American Commission for Educational Exchange (Bulgarian Fulbright Commission) was inaugurated in 1993 under a bilateral agreement between the United States and Bulgaria, which appointed the U.S. Ambassador to Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Minister of Education to serve as honorary chairpersons of the Commission. Over the past two decades, the Commission has administered the exchange of Bulgarian and American scholars, students, teachers, artists and professionals from the public and private sector; offered educational advising services; and disseminated information about opportunities for study, research, and teaching in the U.S. The Bulgarian Fulbright alumni community is more than 1,100 strong and includes prominent leaders in the fields of business, education, law, government, the arts, and the sciences.
