By the early 1960s the original Fulbright Agreement had expired and a new one was negotiated, as a bi-national agreement with the Australian government providing equal funding. This was signed in 1964, in the context of increasing military intervention in the war in Vietnam by both the United States and Australia. Under the ANZUS and SEATO treaties, signed the previous decade, Australia was a keen ally of the United States in Vietnam. The Fulbright Program and the Australia–US alliance were pursued simultaneously by the Australian government. Senator Fulbright visited Australia, criticised the alliance and became a leading dissenter to the Vietnam War. Academics on educational exchange also became active in the anti-war movement.
