After a successful pilot program completed in 2017, the Fulbright Association is proud to announce that the Fulbright-in-the-Classroom initiative is continuing into the 2018-2019 year.
The concept of Fulbright-in-the-Classroom builds on the experiences of Fulbright alumni and on the recognized need to increase the understanding of international affairs and foreign cultures and societies. A recent Council on Foreign Relations and National Geographic survey of college students revealed that only 55 percent of the students were able to correctly answer items on a questionnaire measuring their understanding of current world affairs, and just 29 percent of respondents earned a minimal pass of 66 percent correct or better. The program’s underlying philosophy is that the Fulbright experience is not just beneficial on a personal level, but on a community level, too.
