But when it comes for the Fulbright Programme, in 65 years almost as many Americans have come here, as New Zealanders have travelled to the United States.
The majority of American Fulbrighters have immersed themselves in our culture. Lisa Thompson looks at the impact that New Zealand has had on their lives.
