Since 1947 more than 125,000 US scholars and 200,000 international scholars have participated in the Fulbright Program, the world’s largest academic exchange program. Through programs and events, like this conference, the Fulbright Association enhances the Fulbright exchange experience by promoting collaborative engagement and peaceful diplomacy across our global community.

“Fulbrighters have a deep understanding of people and cultures around the globe… often, turning ideas into action… igniting a ‘Fulbright effect’ where actions get bigger, spread worldwide and unite us with peaceful ties,” said Jennifer Oxley, Executive Director, Fulbright Association. “This gathering in Atlanta is an exciting place to engage with experts, diplomats and influential leaders to collaborate in ways that matter on important global health and social issues.”

According to Kim Eger, co-chair of the Fulbright Association’s 2015 Annual Conference, “This conference serves as an opportunity to launch our ‘Pathways to Peace’ initiative that will have many of our 60 Chapters focus in on positively impacting one of the Fulbright Association’s five core impact areas, some of which tie nicely to the Sustainable Development Goals which will be addressed in both the Water in Africa panel and the one on Empowering Women.”
