Welcome U.S. Fulbright Grantees 2017-2018!

Fulbright Finland awards grants to over 90 Finnish and American students, academics and professionals annually. This year, approximately 45 Americans participate in the Finnish-American Fulbright program. 20 of these American grantees arrive in Finland in August and they will participate in the 4-day Fulbright Finland Arrival Orientation Seminar. During the orientation week the grantees learn about Finnish culture and history, economy, society, education and research as well as daily life and Finnish language. The Fulbright grantees will meet Fulbright Finland alumni, representatives from the U.S. Embassy, Finnish universities, Ministry of Education and Culture, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, as well as Finnish research and cultural institutions through interactive orientation sessions and a special networking reception hosted by the U.S. Embassy.
