Once a Fulbrighter...

Being a Fulbrighter doesn't end with the conclusion of your Fulbright grant period; its a part of your identity that you will continue to nourish by getting involved with the Swedish Fulbright Alumni Association.

Our alumni association offers opportunities for professional, intellectual and social interaction with other Fulbrighters. The Alumni Association holds regular events and publishes news of interest to the larger Fulbright community and is a great way to stay connected to the Fulbright program and to network with other Fulbright alumni.

Since the inception of the program in 1952, more than 1,100 Americans have been to Sweden with a Fulbright grant, and more than 1,500 Swedish Fulbrighters can look back on a year in the United States. Interacting with your fellow Fulbrighters is a good way to establish useful networking partners, and to expand your own horizons.

For Swedes, your local alumni group is the Swedish Fulbright Alumni Association (SFAA), an energetic group that organizes events throughout the year. If you're not already a member, or would like to be more involved, please don't hesitate to register.

For Americans, the best way to keep in touch is through one of the global alumni associations organized by region in the U.S. such as U.S. Department of State Alumni and the Fulbright Association. If you are interested in keeping up-to-date with what is happening in Sweden, consider joining the SFAA as well.
