Looking back at 2023, it has been an exciting year for Fulbright Austria. Join us in a nostalgic journey as we reflect on the significant milestones that shaped our collective experience throughout the past year. Our hearts overflow with gratitude as we extend a warm "thank Fulbright" to each member of our community. Your dedication, resilience, and passion for cultural exchange have been the driving force behind Fulbright Austria’s success in 2023.
As the curtain rises on 2024, a new chapter awaits us—one filled with promise, opportunities, and the shared pursuit of knowledge. This upcoming year, our collective aspiration can be summarized as "shine brighter in 2024." Let us embark on this radiant beginning together.
A special thank you to the Rosemary and David Good Family Foundation for their generous donation of $7,500 to our Artsraising campaign. Support from the foundation and other donors contributes significantly to the enrichment of the arts within our community.
A strong community is built on the pillars of collaboration and shared leadership. It is with great pleasure that we welcome two new members of Fulbright Austria’s board: Alexandra Ganser-Blumenau (University of Vienna, Department of English and American Studies) and Margitta Mätzke (Johannes Kepler University Linz, Institute of Politics and Social Policy). Their expertise and commitment will undoubtedly contribute to the continued growth and success of our community.
As we dance further into the new year, we are thrilled to announce the commencement of the ball season. The 2024 TU Ball, made possible through the generous support of Fulbright Austria’s longtime friend Christine Schwarz, presents a unique opportunity for current program participants to acquire discounted ball tickets and free waltz lessons. Let the rhythm of celebration and camaraderie sweep you off your feet.
Mark your calendars for our sparking reception at the 2024 Vienna Ball of Sciences. It promises to be a night of elegance and enchantment, where the spirit of discovery converges with the grace of the waltz, a sparkling reception that mirrors the brilliance of the minds that comprise our diverse community.
In February, we eagerly anticipate the arrival of our new spring cohort of 16 US Fulbright scholars. The spring orientation will be a joyous occasion filled with warmth and the promise of new beginnings. We look forward to ushering these program participants into the Fulbright Austria community.
As we embark on this new chapter, let us collectively commit to making 2024 a year that shines even brighter. Fulbright Austria is not just an organization; it is a vibrant community fueled by the passion and dedication of its members. Together, let's illuminate the world with the brilliance of knowledge, understanding, and shared experiences.
