“My Fulbright had an enormous impact on my life. It’s only right I show my gratitude by giving back. It opened my eyes and ears to people with knowledge on every topic… it connected me with Fulbrighters around the world, like Janet Echelman and other fascinating people. I’m thrilled to show my long-term commitment to the Fulbright Association, which has extended my life-changing experience.”

“The 1946 Society supports the future: a future of international engagement and global understanding, a future of young scholars who will lead the world, a better future for my grandkids. Think back to your Fulbright. What stands out? For me, it was the people I came to know and understand. What stands out for you? Let’s make sure future generations continue to have this experience. Join me as a fellow 1946 Society member.”

“We’re all grateful for our Fulbright experiences… they truly changed our lives. I’m passionate about promoting the Fulbright concept. I live it every day when I meet people of different cultures. I see the whole world as one huge campus, where countries and cultures interact and learn from each other constantly – that to me, is the ‘Fulbright effect.’ It is a privilege to become a founding member of the 1946 Society. I hope you will join me.”
