Ambassador Trevor Traina hosted a reception for the newly arrived American Fulbright grantees. The reception brought together American grantees with newly returned Austrian Fulbrighters and a host of alumni.
Since 1950/51, Fulbright Austria has brought over 2,500 scholars and professors to Austria and 3,650 Austrians to the United States. Additionally, each year Fulbright manages 140 American teaching assistants who are embedded in Austrian classrooms throughout the country. It is one of the most enduring and successful exchange programs globally and a true bright spot in the Austrian-American partnership.
