On the Fulbright website it states, "The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.” "
In Colombia, the Fulbright program was established in January of 1957. Since that time more than 2,200 Colombians have had an opportunity to come to the US and research or teach at the post-graduate level.
During that same time period, more than 1,100 Americans have taught and researched in Colombia as Fulbright scholars.
The good news is that there may be a Colombian at a University near you :).
