Fulbright 70th anniversary
This academic year marks 70 years of Fulbright in the Netherlands. The first Dutch Fulbright students and scholars set sail to study in the United States for academic year 1949-1950. Through all of our programs in academic year 2019-2020 we sent nearly 70 Dutch students and scholars to the United States and welcomed nearly 50 American students, scholars, and teachers to the Netherlands.
We hope you will join us in celebrating this milestone on Sunday 22 March, 16:00 – 19:00 at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam!
We are pleased to have Fulbright alumna, scholar, educator, and write Gloria Wekker as our keynote speaker. She will commemorate this occasion together with fellow alumni and current Fulbrighters, illuminating why learning alongside one another to promote mutual understanding matters as much in 2020 as it did in 1950.
This event is for everyone – current Fulbrighters, alumni from all of our programs, sponsors, supporters, partners, friends, and family. Please join us.
