Fulbright Day: Latvia – August 6

On August 6, Latvia celebrated Fulbright Day with a social media campaign that highlighted three prominent and impactful alumni. Inese Voika, a Latvian Member of Parliament who studied at Harvard, discussed her experience in the U.S. and its impact on her public service career. The campaign also featured Gatis Šmits, who studied film at NYU, and Dr. Jānis Stāvusis, a genetics scientist who studied at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. The campaign shows how important the enduring people-to-people ties are to the U.S.-Latvia relationship.
