“I felt honored for the last forty plus years simply by being called a Fulbright scholar ever since 1967 when the Fulbright Commission sent me over to London to study for two years, as it turned out, at LAMDA, the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. A fantastic experience where a team of brilliant and eccentric teachers tore me down and built me back up, gave me lessons in voice and diction and stage movement and historical dance and choral singing and fencing and fighting and tumbling and, basically, turned me into the actor that I have been ever since.”
There are a variety of ways that our awards programme alumni can stay involved with the work of the Commission and connect with other alumni.
Through a range of events, networking and volunteer opportunities, the UK Fulbright Alumni Network enables Fulbright alumni to stay connected to each other, with the Commission and to the on-going mission of the Fulbright programme.
Formerly known as the BFSA, the network is now open to all alumni of awards programmes offered by the US-UK Fulbright Commission (Fulbright and Summer Institute/SUSI programmes), as well as other Fulbright alumni who reside in the UK – no membership is required. For more information on how to get involved, visit our website or join our mailing list to receive regular updates on network activities.
During his Fulbright Award (2011-12), Dr Hayhoe developed an understanding of blind visitors’ appreciation of the painting collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the representation of paintings on their website.
Dr Hayhoe has published and lectured internationally on the psychology of blind visual art students, the history of blindness and visual computer programming and web design by blind people.
The idea for Fulbright Frontiers came from alumnus Dr Chris Pallant, who felt the travelling lecture series would provide a great opportunity to do more events for and with alumni outside of London. The series allows alumni to bring their latest research or work, across all disciplines, to a wider audience.
