The Fulbright Commission would like to thank Ambassador Glass for co-hosting with the Fulbright Commission the reception and award ceremony in honor of the 2019 cohort of Portuguese Fulbright grantees that took place Wednesday, July 24th and congratulate those who were recognized and soon will start their study and research projects in the U.S..

We feel proud of our connection to the Fulbright Program, either as grantees and alumni or as Board members, staff, partners and friends of this exceptional and truly global exchange program.

Over the years, both Portugal and the United States have benefited immensely from the academic and cultural exchange fostered by the Fulbright Program. As true cultural ambassadors, Fulbrighters contribute to the development of strong scientific, cultural, political and artistic ties between both countries.

The greatest asset of the Fulbright Program resides in the quality and the drive of the individuals and the institutions it engages. The projects and ambitions of the 2019 record breaking number of 37 Portuguese grantees are excellent examples of this richness and deserve to be highlighted and recognized.

Congratulations again to all of our grantees and we wish you good luck with your projects.
