House of Representatives passes 15% increase in funding for exchange programs

Pretty good news for the Fulbright program: Yesterday, the House of Representatives approved legislation to fund the public diplomacy and exchange programs of the Department of State for the fiscal year 2006:

"The bill, H.R. 2862, includes $410.4 million for the Departmentís educational and cultural exchange programs, an increase of $54.468 million above the FY 2005 level, but $20 million below the Presidentís budget request. As previously reported by the Alliance, the Senate has not yet scheduled a mark-up session for its version of the State Department funding bill."

This quote and further information from the Alliance for International Educational and Cultural Exchange can be found the US Fulbright Association's homepage.
