We are looking forward to welcoming you in-person as we host Fulbright Association’s 45th Annual Conference!

The 2022 Programs Advisory Committee and the FA Staff are hard at work creating a memorable experience for the in-person 45th Annual Conference in October, full of joyful gathering and sharing. We encourage you to reconnect with your fellow Fulbrighters and interact with professionals from around the world.

We hope to build a sense of community and connection for our Fulbright and the international community by sharing scholarship, contributions, and experiences, and to celebrate our endurance through this unstable time.

Call for Proposals 

CFP Deadline: Friday, July 1, 2022

The conference committee actively seeks session proposals for this year’s “Reunion”.  The proposal should be creative, innovative, interactive, and perhaps provocative. We are planning to keep most of our standard session formats (panel discussions, roundtables, posters) and may also invent and invite new ways to share professional development content.
