Fulbright Greece: Building Bridges, Promoting Excellence


Fulbright Greece successfully administered the 2020–2021 and 2021–2022 Greek and U.S. Fulbright Scholarship Programs, despite the difficulties stemming from the pandemic. We are grateful for the support of the governments of the United States and the Hellenic Republic as well as the generosity and commitment of our donors in supporting the continuity and growth of the Fulbright Scholarship Program.
