Overview of Programs

The Fulbright Alumnus-in-Residence Program (FAIR)
The Greater New York Chapter launched the Fulbright NY Alumnus-in-Residence (FAIR) program in 2013, designed to incubate alumni projects that embody the Fulbright mission of fostering peace through international exchange and understanding. FAIR's aim is to kickstart alumni in their post-Fulbright careers, allowing them to continue the work of international exchange through year-long support and thematic event programming. Each of our FAIR residents have created exceptional programs that have social entrepreneurship and international development as missions. Find out more about their residencies and projects here: 


Fulbright Film Series
The Fulbright Film Series is a curated showcase of films by Fulbrighters which are highly impactful and further the mission of cultural understanding. Open to both fiction and documentary films, films are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year and are evaluated according to quality, relevance of topic to Fulbright mission, and involvement of Fulbrighter. With the aim of screening one film in the fall and one in the spring annually, we'll be featuring films by Fulbright alumni to spark dialogue on social issues.


Fulbright NY Open Salons
Fulbright NY Open Salons are opportunities to hear about Fulbrighters’ work by doing presentations in a cross-disciplinary, informal atmosphere, for feedback, critique or to instigate thought. Find out more about past salon topics and speakers:

Global Curriculum Toolkit
The Global Curriculum Toolkit consists of activities and templates that apply an international, multidisciplinary lens into school topics while integrating Fulbright themes. Case studies using Fulbright projects are included, along with activities that build international awareness. Each activity promotes a global lens and literacy by incorporating the use of maps and writing through a range of subjects. It is intentionally interdisciplinary and is designed to fit into existing school STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) curricula. Find out more about our toolkit:


Youth Mentoring Initiative
The Youth Mentoring Initiative features opportunities for Fulbrighters to mentor youth during a High School Writers program for public school students, held in partnership with Sarah Lawrence College and Yonkers Public Schools. The Greater New York Chapter mentors youth as the students write about diversity, conflict resolution and global issues in these workshops, thereby imbuing an international lens and raising awareness of cultural issues.
