The U.S. Fulbright Program was proposed by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1945 and signed into law by President Truman in 1946, following the end of WWII.  The idea behind the program was to promote mutual understanding between peoples of the United States and other countries in the hope that another World War would never happen again.
