Thanksgiving - Thank Fulbright, November 28, 2017

More than 80 guests joined Fulbright Austria in celebrating Thanksgiving on "Giving Tuesday" (November 28) at Pfarrwirt Wien. Austrian and American Fulbright alumni from six decades mingled with friends of the Fulbright Program over a traditional dinner co-hosted by Fulbright Austria and the Austrian Fulbright Alumni Association.

This was a particularly special occasion because we kicked off our first-ever fundraising campaign: “Fulbright – Now More than Ever.” We were touched that over 100 donors contributed more than €15,000 to help us keep sending Austrians and Americans across the Atlantic.

We are especially thankful for our first donors this holiday, and for the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, which will be matching their donations!
