"In 1976, the Board of Foreign Scholarships (now the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board) convened regional Fulbright alumni meetings to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Fulbright Program. The Fulbright Association, Inc., grew out of resolutions adopted at those meetings... The Fulbright Association was established on Feb. 27, 1977, as an independent, private nonprofit, membership organization. The late Arthur Power Dudden became its founding president... The Coca-Cola Foundation supported the Fulbright Prize with generous grants from 1993 through 2008. The Prize is now supported through an endowment made possible by the late John B. Hurford, a former Fulbright Association officer and director, and through the generous gifts of alumni and friends. " [1]

"The Fulbright Prize, a $50,000 award , recognizes extraordinary contributions to increasing mutual understanding and cooperation among peoples. The Association awarded the inaugural Fulbright Prize to Nelson Mandela in 1993. Succeeding Fulbright Prize laureates are Jimmy Carter (1994), Franz Vranitzky (1995), Corazon C. Aquino (1996), Vaclav Havel (1997), Patricio Aylwin Azcar (1998), Mary Robinson (1999), Martti Ahtisaari (2000), Kofi Annan (2001), Sadako Ogata (2002), Fernando Cardoso (2003), Colin L.
