In 2020, Fulbright Austria will be celebrating 70 years of signing the bilateral agreement between the Republic of Austria and the United States of America that established the US Educational Commission in Vienna. In 2021–2022, we will celebrate the anniversary of the first-ever Fulbright grantees crossing the Atlantic—the first Austrian-American exchanges under the auspices of the Fulbright Program took place during the 1951–52 academic year—the legendary first Fulbright cohort!
Let us know your thoughts and ideas on how to celebrate this big anniversary. What would you like to see happening? Do you have a special location in mind where we should host an event? Do you know of a Fulbright grantee or teaching assistant we should connect with? Would you like to contribute your own time and/or talent?
We look forward to all of your ideas and will connect with you to follow up during our planning process. Thank you for getting excited to celebrate 70 years with Fulbright Austria!
