Become a Member

First-year membership is free.

Granted to you to freely explore the association.

Who can become a member?

Since we are an Alumni Association, our core members are former grantees of the Fulbright exchange program. This encompasses students, academics and professionals from both sides of the Atlantic who spent a year abroad as a Fulbright scholar. We also welcome alumni of similar exchange programs between the United States and Germany.

How much does the membership cost?

The regular fee for membership is €50 per year. This is intentionally low so that no one is kept from joining for financial reasons. In turn, all of our activities are organized by volunteers. There is a reduced membership fee of €30 annually (you must simply inform us).

Which steps must I take in order to become a member?

You can download a membership application as a PDF-file. Please send the application to our office or online via email (, and your application will be processed at the next board meeting.

Whom do I contact if I have questions?

If you have questions about how to become a member or your membership status, please contact our Frankfurt office.
