Policies of the Fulbright Program are set and overseen by its bi-national Board of Directors. Initially consisting of eight directors, and later increasing to 10 under the 1986 Executive Agreement, the current composition of the Board is 14 with equal numbers of Thai and U.S. representatives.

The Board is chaired by a high-level representative from the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Six other Thai members are appointed from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Office of the Higher Education Commission, Office of the National Economic and Social Development Board, the Stock Exchange of Thailand, and the Thai Fulbright Alumni Association. The United States Ambassador to Thailand, who is the Honorary Chair, appoints the seven American Board members from senior officials of the Embassy, scholars, and executives from U.S. private enterprises based in Thailand. The bi-national balance of this Board is traditionally and rigorously maintained in every aspect of program administration, including grant selection process, interviews, orientations, and meetings.

The Board appoints an administrator to implement and supervise the policies set for the Fulbright Program and to also serve as Secretary to the Board. The title of the position was later changed from ‘Administrator’ to ‘Administrative Officer’ and then to “Executive Director’.
