What is AFAA?

The Australian Fulbright Alumni Association (AFAA) is a professional membership for Fulbright Alumni. Fulbright Scholars are members of one of the most prestigious academic communities in the world and through the Australian Fulbright Alumni Association (AFAA) their Fulbright experiences are continually enriched by belonging to a network of some of the most talented and accomplished people across Australia and the U.S. AFAA facilitates academic, professional and social activities in Australia and the U.S. for Fulbright Scholars, Alumni, Sponsors and friends, and generates funds to support the Fulbright Australian Alumni (WG Walker) Scholarship and the Fulbright U.S. Alumni Scholarship for Australian and American Scholars.



A vibrant and diverse connected community including Fulbright alumni and broader society with a shared sense of belonging that provide each other support and an enduring sense of being a ‘Fulbrighter’; interact with one another to share ideas and knowledge; inspire others and promoting free thinking, debate and ideas; challenge the status quo for a better Australia/world.


Fulbright Alumni make significant and unique contributions to the overall vitality, creativity, equity and quality of life in Australia, the United States and around the world. Fulbright alumni have, and continue to, engage in political, economic, scientific, philosophical, moral, ethical, cultural, social and environmental research, policy, legislation, practice, culture and public discourse. The Association's goal is to harness the collective power of these contributions and connect Fulbright Alumni with the broader community to share ideas, inspire  and challenge the status quo.
