The Fulbright Commission has launched their Fulbright Alumni Engagement Program (FAEP, https://www.fulbright.com.au/apply-for-an-alumni-grant/). We encourage our members, as active members of the Fulbright Alumni community, to apply for these grants when hosting local events. The application process is simple and will provide an excellent resource for our members to connect with one another and the wider alumni community.
Details of the FAEP from the Commission:
Through the FAEP small grants are available to support activities aimed at engaging scholars and alumni with the Fulbright Program and with each other. The grantees are teams of at least three Fulbright alumni residing in Australia. Applications are received on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
Some examples of how FAEP grants may be used are:
· Holding gatherings to welcome Fulbrighters who move to a new city;
· Running seminars, symposia or fora that address regional or global problems;
· Creating initiatives to find “lost alumni” and reconnect them with the Commission and other Fulbrighters.
