The program did not only have a positive impact on my own professional development; it also enabled me to inspire people in the US, whom I would have…
“Being part of the Fulbright program and meeting so many wonderful people allowed me to experience the USA beyond the borders of my own discipline...”
"My career, my personal life, it’s all hard to imagine without the opportunities afforded to me by Fulbright Austria..."
"...my year was filled to the brim with amazing and wonderful events and people, and opened a world for me that I would never have known otherwise..."
"When the 1986 Fulbrighters were graciously offered a chance to meet with then President Kirschläger, we were each allowed to ask him a question..."
"I am my lifetime grateful to the wonderful Fulbright Program which made a unique contribution to my successful professional career..."
"Clearly the impact of my Fulbright-Hays experience has kept me in a treasured and never-ending adventure..."
"After dinner we all obtained an autograph of "Bill" Fulbright and were overwhelmed by his kindness..."
"My Fulbright year in St. Paul's, Minnesota at the College of St. Catherine, for sure taught me how to cope with extreme cold weather..."
"Together with other Fulbright scholars I was invited to go to Washington DC to attend a conference. I well remember Senator Fulbright addressing us, but soon excusing himself with 'Guys, I am sorry, but I must go up to Capitol Hill to see whether I can do something about the Vietnam War.'... "
...I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am for the opportunities my Fulbright experience has given me, and I hope that once my PhD is finished it will result in the positive contribution to mutual understanding I want it to be."
As I look back, along with my mentors, I have Fulbright to thank for transforming my life more than anything...
"Das hat sicher mein Leben verändert. Es bedeutete sehr viel im Jahr 1953, aus dem noch immer besetzten Österreich in die USA reisen zu dürfen..."
"...thanks to Fulbright and the insights obtained at AU, I can have a meaningful impact with my work."
"In Honolulu, with a time difference of 12 hours from home, a Fulbright scholarship and a curiosity for the new, I enjoyed having the best professors in the world and being able to study a top MBA program in international business..."
"I am convinced that my year as a German language teaching assistant equally shaped both my personality and my view of America in a positive way."
"I would never have thought that I could be of such value to people who wanted to learn German and find out more about Austrian culture."
"...a rather unique training for a wonderful professional life in a exceptional time of rehabilitation after war."
