Fulbright Day: Georgia
On June 3, 2021, the U.S. Embassy Tbilisi will be celebrating the illustrious international company of the Fulbright Program alumni and the 75th anniversary of the program. We are proud to celebrate the contributions made by the Fulbright Program over the years to Georgia’s journey toward becoming an ever more open, thriving society. The Fulbright Program is a compelling model of public-private partnership supporting Georgia’s development in cooperation with the Government of Georgia through International Education Center (IEC), Bank of Georgia and Georgia Capital through Tree of Life Foundation.
