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.
