Fulbright Scholars and Donors Honored in Athens

U.S. Ambassador Daniel B. Smith with Fulbright Scholars in Athens, Greece
U.S. Ambassador Daniel B. Smith and Fulbright Director Artemis Zenetou honored Greek and American Fulbright Scholars and Fulbright donors, in the presence of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Bay Fang, who oversees public diplomacy activities in the Bureau of European Affairs at the Department of State, and was herself a Fulbright Scholar in Hong Kong. The Ambassador congratulated the 51 recipients of Fulbright scholarships this year. Such exchanges, he said, not only advance arts and science in each candidate’s specialty, but also foster mutual understanding, thereby constituting a key pillar in the longstanding partnership and friendship between the United States and Greece.
The Fulbright Program is the premier international educational exchange program in the world. It was established in the United States in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. The Fulbright Foundation in Greece offers scholarships to Greek and American citizens – students, teachers, scholars, and artists – to pursue a wide variety of educational projects. The Foundation awards grants to Greek and US citizens to study, teach, lecture, or conduct research in the United States and Greece, respectively.
