Donations for the Fulbright Program in Portugal are a strong contribution to the fulfilling of Senator Fulbright’s vision of a better world through the development of mutual understanding.

Fostering academic and cultural exchange of Portuguese and American Students, Scholars and Researchers through the Fulbright Program will also, as it has been happening for over half a century, have a real impact in people’s lives and careers.

Both countries – Portugal and the US – have benefited immensely from this exchange. Especially in Portugal, the scientific, cultural and artistic Fulbright community has played an important role in the country’s economic and social development.

It is the goal of the Fulbright Commission to assure that central stage keeps being given to the Fulbright Program in the years to come. Your contribution will help pave the way for an increasing number of Fulbright grantees from both nationalities!

Please note: Donations from companies and organizations (pessoas colectivas) can be considered 120% as costs in its financial statements, as designed to support educational and cultural activities. 25% of the donations from individuals (pessoas singulares) can be deducted in their taxes.
