The Finland-America Educational Trust Fund was established in 1976 (read more about the history), and it is a core funder of the Fulbright Finland Foundation.
There are four members in the Board of Directors of the Trust Fund. The Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture appoint one member each, and the U.S. Ambassador to Finland appoints two members.
The Trust Fund does not have staff of its own. The Fulbright Finland Foundation CEO Terhi Mölsä serves as the ex-officio Director General of the Trust Fund.
