Dear Returnees, Grantees, long-term Fulbrighters, and friends,

We kindly invite you to the annual Welcome Meeting which will take place in the beautiful city of Munich on the weekend of October 13-15, 2017.

“The rapprochement of peoples is only possible when differences of culture and outlook are respected and appreciated rather than feared and condemned, when the common bond of human dignity is recognized as the essential bond for a peaceful world.” (J. William Fulbright)

The Fulbright Alumni Welcome Meeting will be held  in Munich for the first time. The meeting offers you the chance to get to know our association and meet other Fulbrighters who have spent some time in the U.S. (just recently or several years ago) or who are currently participating in their program in Germany. Sharing is caring; this event is a perfect opportunity to not only talk with others about your experiences but also to make your re-entry (or entry) into Germany easier by networking, chatting and socializing with like-minded people of diverse backgrounds and a similar open spirit.

We are looking forward to welcoming you.
