Fulbright alumni and Friends of Fulbright are no ordinary travelers: they are global citizens who are interested in deep interaction with the world. The Fulbright Association offers several different types of travel trips to appeal to varied interests. No matter where you travel with us, you’ll always enjoy cultural insights, stimulating conversations within your group, and a meaningful international experience. A trip with the Fulbright Association is no ordinary tourist trip.
With each journey, our itinerary revolves around the ideals of building lifelong connections and cultural understanding to reflect the founding vision of Fulbright. Our trips are uniquely designed for Fulbright alumni and Friends of Fulbright who seek a deeper travel experience and to discover foreign countries in a more meaningful way. You will have the opportunity to meet people from many walks of life and learn about the places you visit and the culture you witness. When you embark on an Fulbright Trip, you are committing to our shared goal of international education and exchange.
The Fulbright Association offers two types of trips: Insight Trips and Service Trips. Insight Trips focus heavily on learning, while Service Trips are built around volunteering. All trips are guided under the principle of exchange and experiencing a country on a deeper level. Visit the links above to view full itineraries and information about our upcoming trips!
Our travel programs are open to all Fulbright Association members, and members can typically bring one guest on the trip. If you are not yet a member, you can learn about how to join the Fulbright Association here.

Turkmenistan is one of the least visited countries on the planet. Located in Central Asia, bordered by the Caspian Sea to the west, and steeped in history, this area has been an important stop on the Silk Road for centuries and there are numerous historical and cultural sites around the country. The country has a rich cultural heritage and stunning landscapes, including the Karakum Desert, the ancient city of Merv, and the Darvaza Gas Crater.
The Fulbright Association has a unique opportunity to visit this fascinating country in May 2024 for a Service Trip with Dr. Kathy Parkison, a Fulbright Scholar in Turkmenistan for 2022-2023.
As part of the Service trip, we will visit universities, meet students, offer programming at various American Corners around the country, tour cultural sites, and deliver textbooks and books to the American Libraries around the country. By delivering textbooks, we will have more room in our suitcases for the gorgeous Turkmen rugs!
Dates: late May 2024
