Fulbright Alumni

“Once a Fulbrighter, always a Fulbrighter!” That is the saying all Fulbrighters understand. Whenever a Fulbrighter is on campus as a student, faculty, or staff, please check in with the Fulbright Program. Fulbright alumni, as a member of our community, will have opportunities to talk with others about their experience and be invited to social and networking events. Join the Fulbright in Utah Facebook page to get involved.

Additionally, all alumni of the Fulbright Program should become a member of the Fulbright Association. Here in Utah, we have an active chapter of the Fulbright Association. The Chapter organizes many events including viewing a Sundance film during the festival, social potluck, visits to the national parks, lectures presented by visiting Fulbright scholars, and much more. Contact the Fulbright Program for more information.
