The Western Michigan University Fulbright alumni community extends back to 1952, when Professor Chester L. Hunt of the Department of Sociology traveled to the Philippines as a Fulbright Scholar. The University sent out its first student on a Fulbright award in 1993, welcomed its first incoming Fulbright Scholar in 1981 and the first incoming Fulbright Fellow in 2004. The University encourages all Fulbright alumni to stay engaged via resources offered on this Web page.
Fulbright Association of Michigan Chapter
The Fulbright Association engages current and former Fulbright exchange participants in lifelong experiences that advance international understanding through volunteer service to communities, people-to-people diplomacy, and dialogue on global issues. Fulbright Association members form the active constituency for Fulbright exchanges to ensure that they continue to benefit future generations. Established on Feb. 27, 1977, the Fulbright Association is a private, nonprofit organization whose members are Fulbright program alumni and friends of international education. The association supports and promotes international educational and cultural exchange and the ideal most associated with the Fulbright name—mutual understanding among the people of the world.
