The German Fulbright Alumni association brings together internationally oriented students, scholars, and practitioners from a wide range of academic fields and areas of professional expertise. Most of our members have spent a year in the United States with a Fulbright grant.

We are 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.

Based on the personal and educational experience, it is the overriding mission of the German Fulbright Alumni association to

  • strengthen and support cross-cultural contacts and exchange between Fulbrighters from all around the world;
  • encourage dialogue and interaction between international scholars, experts, and activists on topics important to the political, social, and cultural life of nations.
