The Enrichment Program, implemented by CIES on behalf of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), offers a variety of enrichment activities in different locations throughout the academic year. These activities are designed to enable scholars to better experience America and to further the Fulbright Program’s goal of increasing mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and people of other countries.

Like the other enrichment activities, these programs are supported by the U.S. Department of State. Visiting scholars will be contacted by the local FA chapter in their area.
