Fulbright Greece Outreach Ambassadors

Fulbright Greece Outreach Ambassadors are alumni who share their experiences to help promote the scholarship programs, advise future applicants, and connect and engage with our grantees and alumni.

While all Fulbright Greece alumni are ambassadors of the program, the representatives are Fulbright voices in Greek universities and research centers. Read the bios below to see how Outreach Ambassadors help promote Fulbright.

Fulbright Greece Outreach Ambassadors are the Foundation’s points of contact at major Institutions of higher education around Greece.

They inform, advise, and assist potential Fulbright Greece scholarship applicants, relate their personal Fulbright experience in the U.S., and introduce students to the United States higher education landscape. They increase awareness about Fulbright opportunities in the academic and research environment, either in Greece or in the United States, and engage with U.S. Fulbright grantees to help them integrate into their university and local communities.
