Save the Date: Welcome Meeting 2019

We are happy to announce the date for the 2019 Welcome Meeting.
From October 11th to October 13th, 2019 returnees, U.S.-grantees and “old hands” are gathering in the beautiful city of Darmstadt.

More information about the event will be available in all German Fulbright Facebook groups, on our website and via this newsletter.

Membership in the Fulbright Alumni e.V. is not necessary for participation.

Until then, we wish you a good time and hope to see you in Darmstadt!

FRANKly 2019 Call for Articles

The FRANKly is the annual journal of the German Fulbright Alumni Association. In addition to reporting on the regional, national, and international activities of our association, the publication serves as a platform for current Fulbrighters and alumni to share their fascinating experiences, witty opinions, unique perspectives, and thoughtful insights.

A new year, a new FRANKly! The 2019 Call for Articles is here and we are thrilled to announce this year’s theme:

Electric Engagement

What electrifies YOU? What are you passionate about? What is the electricity in your life; in society; in culture? We want to hear about it!

Electricity is the presence and flow of electric charge. Using electricity we can transfer energy in ways that allow us to perform common, everyday tasks. Similarly, Fulbright is all about working together to accomplish positive change and to make our goals become reality. At Fulbright events where current grantees, alumni, and friends are all eager to network, share their ideas, and to learn from one another, the electricity in the room is palpable.

The FRANKly 2019 welcomes contributions that focus on the electrifying factors in your life – how you are fueled by positive energy or how you combat negative charges that cross your path – as well as those that focus on active engagement in research or projects in the tech-industry for which electricity literally plays an integral role. Articles that exhibit a connection with the Fulbright Program, the German Fulbright Alumni Association (F.A.e.V.), or the network of Fulbright Alumni Associations across the globe are always encouraged.

When submitting your article, please provide 2-3 sentences about yourself and a headshot. Authors are encouraged to submit images (3-6 images total) that support their article. Every photograph must include the photographer’s name and a caption. Articles may range in length from 3,000-12,000 characters (including spaces) and should be written in American English.

The deadline for submissions is June 2, 2019. Please send all questions, ideas, and contributions to Anna Irvine (Editor, F.A.e.V. FRANKly) via email at editor.frankly@fulbright-alumni.de. I look forward to your articles!
