One of the most valuable ways that alumni can give back is by sharing their Fulbright experience with others.
Throughout the year, the Commission puts on several events that feature alumni panels, offering you the chance to give new Fulbrighters or those interested in US study valuable insight into what it is like to study and live abroad.
All of these events are in the UK.
