Season's Greetings and a Thank You!

Thank you for making the year 2017 a success for Fulbright Finland!

In 2017 Finland has celebrated the Centennial of its independence under the theme ‘Together’. And “together” describes the essence of Fulbright Finland. Our grantees, alumni, partners and donors have come together on both sides of the Atlantic to celebrate cooperation and joint achievement. In 2017 we have also celebrated the 65th Anniversary of the Fulbright Agreement between Finland and the United States. A historic recognition to the Finnish-American Fulbright program and its Centennial Campaign was the announcement of the Centennial gift from the United States to Finland, USD 500,000 from the U.S. Congress to the Fulbright Finland Foundation.

Partnership awards included, Fulbright Finland awarded over USD 1,67 million (EUR 1,42 million) in grants during 2017, and served over 6,500 individuals in the area of Finnish-American academic exchanges. There were 91 Finnish and American grantees.

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 continue working together with you in 2018!
