The start of 2020 coincides with the start of a new government in Austria, and Fulbright Austria would like to congratulate two Fulbrighters who have taken up ministerial positions in the government:
Dr. Heinz Faßmann
Federal Minister of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF)
Austrian Fulbright Scholar Program, Louisiana State University, 2004–05
Dr. Alma Zadić, LLM
Federal Minister of Justice
Austrian Fulbright Student Program, Columbia University, 2009–10
The Austrian minister of education also serves as an honorary co-chair of Fulbright Austria’s board, so we look forward to once again working with Dr. Faßmann, who has the honor of leading the BMBWF for a second time. We wish Drs. Faßmann and Zadić all the best in their positions and continued success in the new year!
