What Do Chapters Do?

The Fulbright Association has 50 local chapters across the United States that are led and managed by volunteer alumni who reside in the area. Chapters provide Fulbright alumni and visiting Fulbrighters with diverse opportunities for networking, professional development, mentoring, cultural enrichment, and community service.

Our members find that local chapters offer a supportive, collaborative community and a tangible way to extend the Fulbright experience. All members must be affiliated with a local chapter, but there is no obligation to attend chapter events. Upon registration, alumni may select the local chapter that they wish to join, or be assigned to the closest chapter to their home address.

Find Your Local Chapter

Explore the map below to find Fulbright Association chapters in your area. While not all states and localities are served by a Fulbright Association chapter, all zip codes are assigned to the closest chapter. Clicking on the icon for your city or state will open a tab with the contact information for that chapter’s president, as well as chapter websites and Facebook pages or groups (where applicable).
