Fulbright Day: Bolivia

May 25, 7:00 PM EDT

Bolivian Fulbright Alumni: Celebration of the 75th Anniversary with Fulbright Alumni Virtual Summit and Fulbright Talks that Inspire

For about 57 years, Bolivia and the Fulbright Program have worked together to share knowledge across communities and shape a more positive vision of the world. Since its inception in Bolivia, more than 320 Bolivian professionals from many different backgrounds have benefited from the Fulbright Program.

Since early 2000, the Fulbright Program in Bolivia has seen a shift. Many more students from non-traditional backgrounds – indigenous, afro Bolivians – and professionals from rural communities have become important participants of the program.

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Fulbright, Bolivia will host one month of special activities to mark this momentous occasion in the program’s history.  The main event will take place on May 25. Bolivia’s Fulbright Day will also be the opportunity to launch a series of Fulbright talks (Fulbright Talks that Inspire) locally, but in the context of the Fulbright 75 anniversary.

On Bolivia’s Fulbright Day, U.S. Embassy La Paz will host a Fulbright alumni virtual Summit on a theme called: “IMPACT: 75 Years of Global Actions, Opportunities, and Connections.” The Summit will bring together Fulbright alumni from different generations, areas, and from all over the country for continued professional development, relationship building and collaboration. Zoom presentations touching on different subjects will be delivered.
