History of US-SLFC

The United States-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission (US-SLFC) was established by an Agreement signed by the U.S. and Sri Lankan governments on November 17, 1952. We are an autonomous, bi-national, non-political, non-governmental commission promoting mutual understanding through academic, cultural, and professional exchanges. There are over 2,000 alumni of the US-SLFC who are at the highest levels of universities, business, government, NGOs, and artistic organizations. We also oversee EducationUSA which promotes study in American colleges and universities.

At the 70th Anniversary Celebration US-SLFC, we were graced with Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe and U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung. Many Fulbright alumni attended, as well as dignitaries from America and Sri Lanka.
