IF YOUR FULBRIGHT AWARD was a life-changing experience, we would like you to become active NOW and support the Fulbright visitors to the Chicagoland area.
We have two programs: The Fulbright Chicago Mentoring Program, and the Fulbright in the Classroom Program. Come and meet with us. We need you! Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
WHEN Thursday December 8, 2022
TIME 6:30- 8:30 PM
WHERE 2735 West Logan Blvd, Chicago, IL 60047 (home of Fulbrighter to the Czech Republic Michael Schlesinger)
If you are interested in becoming a Mentor or getting involved and cannot attend, please contact Marilyn Susman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fulbright Chicago Mentoring Program wants the ideas and involvement of Fulbright alumni, who will mentor visiting Fulbright scholars and students.
This mentoring program was officially launched on Sept. 30, 2022, after a pilot program was developed and applied a year ago. It aims to connect our international visitors with a Fulbright alumni to provide support, guidance and enrichment during the time they spend in the United States.
You may also want to participate in Fulbright in the Classroom Program, by sharing your experience as a Fulbright awardee with students in our local schools.
This past October during the 45th Fulbright National Annual Conference, the Chicago Chapter of the Fulbright Association was presented with the Program of the Year Award by the National Fulbright Association in Washington, DC. Through this Fulbright in the Classroom program, adopted by our chapter in 2010, local Fulbright alumni have visited dozens of schools in the Chicago land area during all these years, sharing the Fulbright mission with middle and high school students.
These programs can enrich your life while supporting visiting scholars and students as well as students in our local schools. We want to hear from you!
