BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The U.S. State Department is bringing its Fulbright Scholars program to Alabama for a seminar on human rights.

The agency says 65 visiting scholars from about 40 countries will be in Birmingham and Montgomery starting Wednesday for the four-day program. The department is hosting the event with the Council for International Exchange of Scholars and the International Services Council of Alabama.

The scholars are conducting research and lecturing at colleges nationwide. They will meet with officials and experts and visit landmarks including the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and the state Capitol in Montgomery.

They will also work with local volunteers at Montgomery schools and visit in Birmingham-area homes.

The Fulbright Program began in 1946 as an international cultural exchange sponsored by the State Department.
