The Fulbright Foundation in Greece is administered by a binational Board of Directors. The composition of the Board is determined by the bilateral agreement between the U.S. and Greece, which was ratified in 1948. Eight members, four American and four Greek citizens, make up the governing body of the Fulbright Foundation in Greece. The U.S. Ambassador serves as the Honorary Chairman of the Board and endorses all appointments. The members represent academic, corporate, and diplomatic fields from the Greek and American communities and include representatives from the U.S. Mission in Athens and the Government of the Hellenic Republic.
The Board of Directors appoints an Executive Director who manages the work of the Foundation and its staff.
The Board of Directors oversees administration and finances and formulates policies and programs based on the guidelines of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB).
The primary funding for the Fulbright Foundation in Greece comes from the Government of the United States with support from the Government of the Hellenic Republic and the generosity of its donors: foundations and organizations, corporations, educational organizations, associations, and individuals.
The Fulbright Foundation in Greece works closely with the following organizations and agencies:
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB), the Institute of International Education (IIE), the U.S. Embassy Athens, the U.S. Consulate in Thessaloniki, the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs.
