Campus Ambassadors

Fulbright Finland Outreach Ambassadors

Fulbright Finland Outreach Ambassadors are grantees and alumni who enthusiastically share their experiences to help promote the grant programs, advise future applicants, and connect and engage with our current grantees and alumni.

While all Fulbright Finland Foundation grantees and alumni are ambassadors of the program, the ambassadors below are especially eager to be in contact with you. See below a brief biography of each ambassador and how they can help.

The Fulbright Finland Outreach Ambassadors volunteer to promote the Fulbright Finland Foundation programs (develop informational sessions, represent the Fulbright Finland Foundation in study abroad fairs, distribute grant program information at their institution), offer information and advice for future Fulbright Finland applicants, as well as integrate and engage U.S. Fulbright grantees into the university community with future applicants and other Fulbright Finland alumni.

Please find below the current Fulbright Finland Outreach Ambassadors and their contact information:
