The Fulbright Commission’s annual Awards Programme enables students and scholars to undertake study, research or lecturing at a recognised college or institution in the United States. The Fulbright Programme has been widely recognised since its inception in 1957 as the premier USA/world scientific and educational exchange programme.

In 2003, the Teagasc Authority approved a proposal that Teagasc would enter an alliance with the Irish Fulbright Foundation for a three-year period. This involved the annual award of two Walsh Scholarships as joint Fulbright-Teagasc scholarships for postgraduate study/research in the United States. In 2006, the Authority agreed to continue the funding on an on-going basis.
