The U.S. alumni of the Fulbright Program in Poland constitute an unique elite of its kind. This group amounts to over 2,000 scholars and students who have taught or conducted research at higher education institutions in Poland since 1959. Many of these alumni have achieved distinctions in government, science, the arts, business, philanthropy, education, and athletics. We are incredibly proud of all of them.

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 only. 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 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 award Senator Fulbright with Poland’s highest honor for a foreigner: the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland.
Polish alumni of the Fulbright Program are cordially invited to join the Association! To join, please go to http://www.fulbright.org.pl/member/become or contact Prof. Halina Abramczyk at [email protected] or Beata Brożek-Płuska at [email protected]
