Fulbright Austria said goodbye to more than 80 US teaching assistants (of the 150+ we manage) at the fifth annual USTA program going-away Heurigen in early May. Executive Director Lonnie Johnson and USTA program officer Dune Johnson were on hand for a festive evening full of Tracht (traditional dress) at the 10er Marie Heurigen. We also had a special guest: Andrea Dorner from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science, and Research (BMBWF), who is responsible for the overall coordination of the ministry's TA program. On behalf of the BMBWF and Fulbright Austria, we wish all of the USTA alumni the best of luck in their future endeavors!
