Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction in government, science, the arts, business, philanthropy, education, and athletics.
Since its inception in 1946, more than 400,000 Fulbrighters have joined the Fulbright Program’s diverse and dynamic network of students, scholars, artists, teachers, and professionals. Well beyond the completion of their grants, this vast and talented alumni network continues to foster mutual understanding between the United States and partner nations, share knowledge across communities, and collaborate on projects that improve lives around the world.
Becoming a Fulbrighter means entering into a diverse community of accomplished individuals. There are many ways to stay involved, including reaching out to home communities, participating in Fulbright alumni associations, networking with other Fulbrighters, and becoming a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador. Whether it is for career development and possibilities, new grant opportunities, travel advice, or post-grant activities, Fulbrighters are always ready to help each other.
