I am truly grateful for the experiences I have been able to have. Joining the Fulbright Program can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it can…
Wherever I find myself later this year, next year, or more down the road, I will remember this story and the many my year as a USTA has provided.
"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."
"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."
"The three years as a Fulbright Grantee have been the most incredible years of my lifetime, and have impacted my outlook on life forever."
"...without the Fulbright I would not have been able to find the records and archival work that I uncovered..."
"The year I got to spend at Bowling Green State University was the most amazing one of my life and I would not trade a single second of the time I got to spend there for anything in the world."
"My year at Hartwick College was one of the shortest and longest years of my life. Short because time passed by so quickly looking back and long because the experience is worth a lifetime full of experiences..."
"My experience as a Teaching Assistant in Austria had a profound effect on my professional development and shaped my entire professional career."
I consider myself so very lucky for the doors that have been opened for me through Fulbright already...
