The 1946 Society is a giving program that honors the founding year of the Fulbright Program, 1946.
In 2015, the Fulbright Association established the 1946 Society to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Program. Now in its seventh year, members enjoy exclusive benefits that include VIP event invitations, briefing sessions, and recognition at Fulbright Association programming.
Join the 1946 Society to support academic exchanges and the Fulbright Association’s mission to continue and extend the Fulbright tradition of education, advocacy, and service. 1946 Society members work towards this mission, in part, by donating $1,946 annually.
We invite all donors who give $1,946 or more during a calendar year to this community of donors.
Community– Enjoy VIP invitations to new programs, special celebrations, and exclusive events with and networking opportunities among other 1946ers.
Early Access to Event Registration– Secure tickets before tickets are available to our full membership, ensuring you will always have a special seat.
Quarterly Briefing Sessions – Stay engaged with Fulbright Association strategy and happenings through an exclusive virtual briefing with FA’s Executive Director.
Public Recognition – Inspire our Fulbright community of givers through recognition on the Fulbright Association webpage and in the Fulbright Association Annual report.
Spirit Wear – Showcase your support for the Fulbright Program with access to the newest Fulbright Association-branded spirit wear, publications, and merchandise.
