Quiénes somos

Bienvenido a la Asociación de Ex-Becarios J. W. Fulbright de España. Fundada en Marzo de 1990, la Asociación está formada por 450 miembros, que en su mayor parte realizaron parte de su formación en los EEUU gracias a una beca Fulbright. Conocidas con el nombre del Senador J. William Fulbright, que fue en 1947 su promotor, las Becas Fulbright constituyen el programa internacional más prestigioso de intercambios culturales entre Estados Unidos y el resto del mundo. Estas becas han permitido que jóvenes con especial capacidad intelectual y motivación hayan ampliado sus estudios en universidades y centros estadounidenses de prestigio internacional. En España, más de cuatro mil ex-becarios retornados han desarrollado en las últimas décadas brillantes carreras profesionales en  investigación, docencia y en grandes y pequeñas empresas. Os animamos a conocernos mejor y a participar en dichas actividades, especialmente si eres o has sido becario Fulbright: galería de fotos.

The J.W. Fulbright Association was founded by alumni in 1990 to support the Fulbright program in Spain.  Two of its objectives are to help returning Spanish Fulbright alumni reintegrate into Spanish life after their stay in the U.S. and to welcome U.S. grantees when they arrive in Spain.

The J.W. Fulbright Association was founded by alumni in 1990 to support the Fulbright program in Spain.  Two of its objectives are to help returning Spanish Fulbright alumni reintegrate into Spanish life after their stay in the U.S. and to welcome U.S. grantees when they arrive in Spain.  Major activities include a monthly guest speaker event known as the “Tertulia”, Christmas and summer banquets at the exclusive Madrid Country Club, and excursions, known as “National Encounters”.

Outreach to other alumni groups has been an important endeavor for the Association.  It organized the first large-scale international meeting of Fulbright alumni from Europe and Morocco in Toledo the summer of 2000. Shortly afterwards, it launched an alliance of alumni associations known as the Ryder Club. One of its benefits has been to provide a wider pool of people for each organization´s activities.  A major joint activity of Ryder is a dinner with every new U.S. ambassador.  The J.W. Fulbright association welcomes the members of other associations to its activities listed on the website: www.asoc-fulbright.es. On the occasion of the association´s 20th anniversary a book was published. It includes articles in English and testimonies by U.S. Fulbright alumni about how they benefited from the association´s support.  It may be downloaded athttp://issuu.com/asoc-fulbright/docs/libro-fulbright-20-aniversario
