Celebrate 70 Years with Fulbright Austria: Anniversary Planning

In 2020, Fulbright Austria will celebrate 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!

Fulbright Austria is seeking the support of its alumni, friends, and associates on both sides of the Atlantic to share ideas, contribute, and get excited about the anniversary celebrations. Alumni from all Fulbright Austria programs—students, teaching assistants, scientists, and scholars—and from every generational cohort of participants—from the 1950s to the present—are invited to share their ideas, their commitment, their experience, and their expertise with us. Share your time and talent with Fulbright Austria!

We are thankful for our growing Fulbright Austria community and very much look forward to celebrating the big anniversary with you. Stay tuned for more updates and invitations—and make sure we have your current address on file. Update your address now!
