Fulbright Finland kiittää!
Thank you for making the year 2016 a success for Fulbright Finland!
Partnership awards included, Fulbright Finland awarded over USD 1,55 million (EUR 1,4 million) in grants during 2016, and served over 5600 individuals in the area of Finnish-American academic exchanges. There were 94 Finnish and American grantees.
In addition, this past year Fulbright Finland hosted researchers from all Arctic Council member countries for the international Fulbright Arctic Week in Oulu, organized the 2016 European Fulbright Conference in Helsinki with participants from over 40 countries, and served as the clearinghouse for Fulbright inter-country scholar grants for all of Europe. In preparation for the recognition and celebration of Finland’s Centennial Year 2017, our Honorary Chair, U.S. Ambassador Charles C. Adams launched the Fulbright Finland Centennial Fund. And we are pleased to announce that this year Fulbright Finland was registered as a not-for-profit foundation in Finland.
None of this would be possible without the unwavering support from our alumni, partners, sponsors, and donors. Thank you!
With our deepest gratitude, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a bountiful new year! We look forward to celebrating with you Finland’s Centennial in 2017!
