Enrichment


 

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.

Enrichment Seminars

Every year, there are thematic enrichment seminars open to Fulbright Visiting Scholars. Fulbrighters who attend seminars will be able to share ideas and collaborate with other Fulbrighters,  forging connections and friendships. Fulbrighters will be joined by local supporters of Fulbright’s mission to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and people of other countries. Seminar activities include participating in community activities that will expand Fulbrighter’s knowledge of American society and culture from a variety of perspectives.
