2018 Nominations for Annual Chapter Awards Now Open

2018 Nominations for Annual Chapter Awards Now Open

The Fulbright Association established a tradition of presenting awards to chapters with outstanding programs, initiatives, and advocacy eff­orts at the 2016 Annual Conference. The Chapter Awards are intended to honor the hard work, creativity, and time that our volunteer alumni chapter leaders dedicate to achieving the mission of the Fulbright Association. Through the continued generosity of Dr. Mary Ellen Schmider, chapters are awarded these honors at the Annual Conference.

Chapter volunteers are the heart of the Fulbright Association. We want to recognize efforts and reward volunteers hard work. This tradition highlights the best of our chapters’ diverse initiatives across the country and consists of three award categories: Excellence in Advocacy, Outstanding Programming, and Committee’s Choice. To nominate your chapter for one of these awards, please complete application online.


  1. Excellence in Advocacy Award: $1500
  2. Outstanding Programming Award: $1000
  3. Award Committee’s Choice: $500
