The Fulbright Leaders for Global Schools Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by IREX in the U.S., Fulbright Finland Foundation in Finland, and Singapore's Ministry of Education in Singapore.
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State fosters mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries around the world. ECA strives to achieve this goal through a wide range of international exchanges as authorized by the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended. ECA works in close cooperation with U.S. Embassies and bilateral Fulbright Commissions overseas to promote personal, professional, and institutional ties between private citizens and organizations in the United States and abroad.
The Fulbright Finland Foundation is an independent not-for-profit based in Helsinki, Finland. With the purpose of promoting a wider exchange of knowledge and professional talents through educational contacts between Finland and the United States, the Foundation collaborates with a range of government, foundation, university and corporate partners on both sides of the Atlantic to design and manage study and research scholarships, leadership development programs, and internationalization services.
The Ministry of Education in Singapore is committed to its mission of Molding the Future of the Nation, and with this, its commitment to developing the people who will determine the future of the nation. Its key responsibilities include formulating, implementing and continually reforming education policies on education structure, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. Every child will be provided with opportunities to develop holistically and maximize his or her potential, prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Towards this end MOE will ensure Every School is a Good School via effective school leadership, high professional teacher standards, school innovations, customized resourcing and strong partnerships between school and the community.
