We are excited to share important news affecting the Fulbright community worldwide. On the 22nd of May, the Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board unveiled a rebranding of the Fulbright Program, with a new logo and mission-driven language.

In coordination with all Fulbright-related organizations around the world, the Fulbright Association is joining this effort, and we are pleased to share our new logo.  You will find this now on our website and all social media channels.  Over the coming days, all of our chapters will make the same transition.

Why is this happening?  The new logo is part of a wider effort to put the Fulbright’s mission front and center, conveying the Program’s prestige without being elitist.  The messaging and the logo emphasize the impact on mutual understanding, the exchange of knowledge and solutions to complex global challenges.

How did we get here?  The State Department and its partners have spent several years developing this rebranding, interviewing over 100 Fulbrighters, educators and others worldwide, surveying over 1,000 U.S. college students, and analyzing Fulbright’s coverage in the U.S. media.

We hope that you are excited by this rebranding and the new logos for Fulbright and the Fulbright Association.  You can celebrate by getting your new Fulbright t-shirt, and catching up with Nan McEntire, as “Nan Rides for Fulbright” across the U.S—sporting the new brand!

You can also celebrate by taking action right now to ensure Fulbright’s continued funding by Congress.  If you haven’t signed the petition, do that right now.  If you have, but didn’t send a quick email, then click here to contact Congress.  Both will take just a minute and help ensure the future of Fulbright!
