The Fulbright Program and LASPAU LASPAU has collaborated with the Fulbright Foreign Student Program since 1975 in the administration of the Faculty Development Program and other Fulbright programs. Since then, over 4,000 Fulbright grantees from Latin America and the Caribbean have completed U.S. graduate degrees through programs administered by LASPAU. The largest number of current grantees comes from Colombia, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Peru. The Fulbright Foreign Student Program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Fulbright Commissions and Public Affairs Sections of U.S. Embassies in the region set national, institutional, and field-of-study priorities.
