Becoming a Fulbrighter means entering into a diverse community of accomplished individuals. Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction in government, science, the arts, business, philanthropy, education and athletics.

Stand for Fulbright
The Fulbright programme is facing an existential threat: the recently proposed federal budget would result in a 47% cut to the Fulbright programme for Fiscal Year 2018.
The Fulbright Association and UK Fulbright Alumni Network need your help to Stand for Fulbright. Please take action now to save the Fulbright programme.
A 47% cut would devastate the programme, forcing the elimination of many grants and harming relationships with host countries. The programme as you know it, which changed your life and makes the world safer and more peaceful, would be diminished beyond recognition.
The programme has faced budget cuts from previous administrations of both parties, but it has sustained flat funding due to unique Congressional support and the collective voice of the Fulbright alumni community.
Now more than ever, it is critical that we Stand for Fulbright.
There are many ways to stay involved with the Fulbright community once your grant period is over:
- Alumni news
- Alumni events, including the Fulbright Frontier Lectures
- Alumni mailing list
- Alumni LinkedIn group
There are also a number of ways to be directly involved in the work of the Commission:
- Donate to Fulbright Futures
- Fulbright Friends, supporting newly arrived Fulbrighters
- Alumni Panel, providing alumni perspectives at Fulbright events
- Reading Panel, supporting the selection process of future Fulbrighters
