Are you interested in networking with alums who are passionate about Fulbright Austria? Do you enjoy brainstorming, supporting fundraising initiatives, and developing events and activities? Are you passionate about being an ambassador for others? This is what the Fulbright Austria Alum Advisory Panel is all about!
What is the Alum Advisory Panel?
The Alum Advisory Panel is a volunteer panel comprised of Fulbright Austria alums that was established to support Fulbright Austria’s mission by strengthening ongoing alum engagement, supporting Fulbright Austria’s fundraising goals, and giving panel members the opportunity to act as ambassadors for the Fulbright Austria community. The panel works to foster and sustain a mutually beneficial community that supports research, study, and teaching opportunities for future Fulbright Austria program participants.
The advisory panel advises Fulbright Austria on alum outreach, development, and fundraising events and activities. The panel also helps Fulbright Austria recruit alums to donate to Fulbright Austria financially or as volunteers at Fulbright Austria events and activities.
Who are we looking for?
To be a member of the Alum Advisory Panel, you must have completed a program administered by Fulbright Austria and should:
- Commit to a term of two years

- Be passionate and committed to Fulbright Austria’s values
- Show a history of connection to Fulbright Austria
- Lead by example and make an annual gift to the Fulbright Austria Opportunity Fund
- Promote Fulbright Austria in your social and professional circles

The Alum Advisory Panel consists of up to 12 alums and meets a minimum of two times per year. Members can attend meetings either in person or online. The agenda will be driven by the panel’s composition and the inputs panel members provide for the Fulbright Austria engagement plan.
