In order to apostille academic degrees obtained in the United States, you must get in touch with the Office of the Secretary of State of the state where the university that issued the degree is located.
For those cases where the Secretary of State office requires the documents to be previously notarized before they can issue the apostille, it is important to remember that this notarization must be done within the same state that will grant the apostille. This is not a service provided by either the Fulbright Commission in Ecuador or the American Embassy in Ecuador.
The Fulfright Program aims to bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs and thereby to increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship.
J. William Fulbright
