The Enrichment Program, implemented by CIES on behalf of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), offers a variety of enrichment activities in different locations throughout the academic year for current Fulbright Visiting Scholars. These activities are designed to enable scholars to better experience America and to further the Fulbright Program’s goal of increasing mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and people of other countries.

The Fulbright Association (FA), comprised of alumni and friends of the Fulbright Program, invites visiting scholars to participate in enrichment activities organized by many of its 58 chapters located throughout the country.  Like the other enrichment activities, these programs are supported by the U.S. Department of State. Visiting scholars will be contacted by the local FA chapter in their area.  For more information, including details regarding the geographic jurisdiction of each chapter, please visit www.fulbright.org.  For scholars not located in chapter areas, feel free to contact the Fulbright Association for possible connections with U.S. Fulbright alumni in your area.

Through these opportunities, we invite you to experience the Fulbright world outside the classroom.

Best wishes for an enriching experience in the United States!
