Counselor for Public Affairs James Wolfe and Cultural Attaché Jeanne Briganti recently met with the fourteen alumni of the Fulbright Program in Poland selected to serve for two years as the Fulbright Ambassadors of the Polish-U.S. Fulbright Commission.
This is the second edition of the program. Ambassadors, who are chosen from a competitive pool of interested Alumni, represent diverse regions in Poland, and focus on promoting the Fulbright program among students and academics at universities and research institutions all over Poland. During their outreach activities, the Fulbright Ambassadors will share their experiences of studying, researching, and/or teaching in the United States; they will talk about the grant application process; and they will give tips on how to submit competitive applications.
The Fulbright Program Ambassadors will mainly operate in numerous academic centers in Poland: Bydgoszcz, Toruń, Gdańsk, Katowice, Gliwice, Kielce, Kraków, Lublin, Łódź, Opole, Nysa, Poznań, Radom, Rzeszów, Szczecin, Warszawa and Wrocław.
The Ambassadors are creative and passionate people who work according to the idea of “giving back to the community.” Would you like to invite a Fulbright Program Ambassador to your university to learn more about Fulbright grants in the U.S. for students, doctoral candidates, and academic researchers and instructors?
