We originally planned for an event on June 10, 2020, in Innsbruck to celebrate the signing of the exchange agreement between Austria and the US. However, due to COVID-19, we merged the official ceremony with our event planned in 2021. In lieu of an in-person event in 2020, Fulbright Austria will now celebrate the signing of the exchange agreement virtually starting on June 10, 2020. The executive director and honorary co-chairs of Fulbright Austria as well as the rector of the University of Innsbruck will share some messages of congratulations on our website and social-media channels in honor of this momentous occasion.
The Fulbright Austria community can still take part in the celebrations. Please feel free to use the resources below to post a personal statement or share a short video message or photo on our social-media channels. We want to mirror the signing of the bilateral exchange agreement as seen in the black and white photo. Please do not forget to use the hashtag #70yearsofbrightminds when posting on social media. Together, we can highlight the personal impact Fulbright Austria programs have had since 1950.
