Fulbright Alumni Association of Greek Scholars
The Fulbright Alumni Association of Greek scholars, founded in 1978, were among the first ones to be established internationally. The Association is guided by the idea of the program’s founder, Senator J. William Fulbright, to bring together people of different nations and contribute to world peace through better international understanding. There are two chapters, one in Athens and one in Thessaloniki. The Association organizes lectures, social functions and other events that allow its members to pursue the Foundation’s objectives in an informal, yet effective way and to maintain a network that keeps alumni together and active.
State Alumni is an online global community for all past and current participants of U.S. government-sponsored exchange programs – including Fulbright alumni. Interactive, dynamic, and password-protected, alumni.state.gov offers alumni a place to network, share ideas and stories; participate in Q&A Live discussions; and access free valuable resources such as grants, jobs, and research databases. The Fulbright Community on State Alumni brings together current grantees and alumni, while also supporting the program’s worldwide professional network. In order to access the Fulbright alumni subpage, you will first need to create a user account at: http://alumni.state.gov.
