The Fulbright Experience: Continuing Collaboration and Alumni Impact

27 July 2018

Every year, the Fulbright US Scholar Program provides up to 25 academics with the opportunity to spend a semester at one of Fulbright Austria’s partner institutions, where they conduct research, teach, and advise students. Very often, their Fulbright experience extends far beyond the four months spent in Austria. As an international educational and cultural exchange program, the Fulbright US Scholar Program was designed to initiate contact between US academics and faculty and students at their host institutions and lay the ground for long-term collaborations. At the same time, the program wants to provide grantees with opportunities to build their academic careers and focus on their scholarship.
