Fulbright Students Are Coming to the Twin Cities
On Thursday, May 2nd, 130 Fulbright students from over seventy countries will arrive in Minneapolis for a weekend seminar on social entrepreneurship and a chance to explore the Twin Cities! We are looking for Minnesota residents to share an evening with these outstanding graduate students! This experience will be an unforgettable opportunity to spend an evening with students from the opposite side of the world, to foster mutual understanding, to learn about the Fulbright program, and to show them Minnesota hospitality!
The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by former Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. Since its inception more than sixty years ago 310,000 "Fulbrighters," 116,900 from the United States and 192,800 from other countries, have participated in the Program. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 8,000 grants annually. Fulbright Alumni include Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, governors and senators, ambassadors and artists, prime ministers and heads of state, professors and scientists, Supreme Court Justices, and CEOs.
