Australian Fulbright Alumni Association (AFAA)

Upcoming events

    • 01 Mar 2019
    • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    • University House Common Room, Australian National University, Canberra

    The salon will be a discussion of the Australian-American relationship in its broadest sense, including political, economic and cultural aspects. What can Australian learn from the United States? How can Australia emulate the successes of America - an economic powerhouse, a cultural melting pot, a leader in developing pioneering technologies - while avoiding some of its challenges such as economic inequality, racial divisions and political polarisation?

    The event will be hosted by the Australian Fulbright Alumni Association. Fulbright scholars from both countries will be present at the event, along with Fulbright alumni, and students from the Australian National University. The event will be free to attend and capped to 120 places. The event is supported by the United States Embassy. The event will run in conjunction with the Fulbright Scholar Orientation Program run by the Australian-American Fulbright Commission.

    The event will include speakers followed by morning tea refreshments. RSVPs will be open closer to the event.

    The Australian Fulbright Alumni Association is pleased to announce a save the date for its biennial conference. The 2019 Conference theme is: Global partnerships to local action.

    The Fulbright Program is a flagship example of cultural exchange aimed at increasing bi national research collaboration, cultural understanding, and the exchange of ideas. The first Fulbright Program grantees traveled overseas in 1948. Since its inception in Australia in 1949, the Fulbright Commission has awarded over 5,000 scholarships, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and interconnected network of Alumni. November 2018 – November 2019 marks a year of celebrating the Fulbright’s 70th anniversary. In this vein – our AFAA conference theme is Global Partnerships. In today’s age of globalization, the establishment of global partnerships is critical.  Countries must work together to achieve collective goals, such as tackling climate change, sustainable development, and establishing effective economic trade policy.  This one day conference will feature symposium on these topics and more.
