Fulbright Alumni Scholarship In honour of our 20th Anniversary, Fulbright Canada is creating a Fulbright Alumni Scholarship. We are asking Fulbright Alumni to make a modest contribution which will allow us to provide additional opportunities to potential Fulbright students who would not otherwise receive an award. All contributions made by alumni will be matched by Fulbright Canada. The essence of intercultural education is the acquisition of empathy--the ability to see the world as others see it, and to allow for the possibility that others may see something we have failed to see... The simple purpose of the exchange to erode the culturally rooted mistrust that sets nations against one another. The exchange program is not a panacea but an avenue of hope .... Senator J. William Fulbright The Price of Empire

The recipient of the Fulbright Canada alumni award will embody the qualities that best reflect our alumni and the Fulbright ideal. Our alumni are ambassadors for their country with a record of achievement and service that is extraordinary. Reflecting the tremendous diversity of Fulbright, these women and men are the best and the brightest that Canada and the United States have to offer.
