ALUMNI ASSOCIATIONS

Polish Fulbright Alumni Association

The Polish Fulbright Alumni Association (PFAA) was established in 1993 in Warsaw. It is open only to Polish alumni of the Fulbright Program. The aim of the Association is to build on its educational and social resources and to conduct its activities in a manner consistent with the mission of the Program. Although it is created exclusively for Polish alumni, the PFAA does advise U.S. Fulbrighters about professional and personal life in Poland. It was also the association that requested President Lech Walęsa to award Senator Fulbright with Poland’s highest honor for a foreigner: the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland.
