Event description
A Fulbright Forum Celebrating Global Education: Focus on K-12 Teachers, Higher Education

About this Event

The Maine Chapter of the Fulbright Association gratefully acknowledges the support of Bangor Savings Bank in sponsoring this event.

October 24, 2020 happens to be the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, and 2021 will also be the 75th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program! What a perfect opportunity to focus on a segment of our alumni and friends who have been recipients of awards that target support of global education, distinguished achievement in the realm of teaching, and international teacher exchange.

We anticipate that there will be an informational session and an overview to types of Fulbright awards that are available to U.S. teachers of early, secondary, and higher education provided by Outreach & Recruitment of the Institute of International Education (IIE) and the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) out of Washington, D.C. Additionally, a panel of recently returned alumni will address value and impact of their awards; there will also be a panel of representatives from area colleges who will discuss global teacher exchange programs at their respective institutions. We will also hold our Annual Business Meeting after the close of the event.

This event is FREE to Fulbright Program alumni and "Friends of Fulbright" ( Fulbright Association members). Tickets for guests of alumni and "Friends" are also available at no cost. However, registration IS required, so reserve your seat! Space may be limited.
