Interest Initiative Groups (“thematische Arbeitsgruppen”)

As of February, 2019, the Association has officially made it possible to not only get involved in your local Regional Chapter, but also in an interest-based group within the Association regardless of geographical location. These groups have an official German name: thematische Arbeitsgruppe. The English equivalent is an Interest Initiative Group.

Initiative Groups can be started by a group of five Association members on any topic of interest that supports Fulbright values and that receives approval from the board.

For members considering forming such a group and looking for other interested Association members, feel free to contact the board ( for assistance.

To join an Interest Initiative Group, please contact the spokesperson assigned to the particular group, listed below.
