The impact of neo-liberalism on the university sector had profound consequences for the Fulbright Program’s ability to support academic research. Bi-nationalism had meant the Australian Fulbright Program was well-funded by the Australian government even as the US government reduced its contribution in the late 1960s and 1970s. From the 1980s further cutbacks meant the program had to turn towards the private sector and corporate funding for support, involve the alumni and to introduce targeted scholarships. This raised dilemmas about autonomy and freedom from interference that had plagued the Fulbright Program throughout its history.
