The Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States and Nepal (also known as “the Fulbright Commission” or “USEF/Nepal“) was established in 1961 by executive agreement between the governments of Nepal and the United States, and has operated continuously since that time. 

It is a binational organization governed by a Board of Directors composed of five Nepalis appointed by the Government of Nepal and five Americans appointed by the American Ambassador. The Board sets policies, awards grants and oversees the Commission’s Secretariat which administers the exchange programs.

The Commission administers educational exchange activities between Nepal and the United States and provides information about American higher education opportunities to the Nepali public through programs like the Fulbright program, the Hubert Humphrey Fellowship program and more. The Commission also houses Nepal’s EducationUSA Advising Center (EAC), a global network of over 430 international student advising centers in more than 175 countries. The EAC provides accurate, current, and comprehensive information on higher educational opportunities in the USA. Supported by the U.S. Department of State, our EducationUSA Advising Center is the only official source in Nepal for information and advice on U.S. higher education. 

The Commission’s in-house Prometric Test Center, is an established and leading testing services provider, delivering technology-enabled tests and providing the highest level of customer service. Prometric operates a global network of 8000 secure test centers across more than 160 countries, supporting more than 7 million test takers annually for assessment solutions to many of the world’s most recognized licensing and certification organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies.
