Fulbright Irish Awards 2021-2022 

Chair of the Board of the Fulbright Commission in Ireland, Professor Diane Negra: “As a Fulbright Alumna, I strongly encourage students, scholars and professionals to consider making an application for one of the 2021-2022 Fulbright Awards. The Fulbright Program is renowned for recognizing and facilitating research endeavours of the highest calibre. Since its formation, it has also promoted and encouraged the kind of cross-cultural collaboration and understanding that is so vital to addressing global challenges. These Awards provide unique opportunities to play a role in addressing our common interests and needs and to positively shape the future.”

Executive Director of the Fulbright Commission in Ireland, Dr Dara FitzGerald: “Fulbright continuously creates many thousands of deep personal connections in a complex and changing world. Our programs continue to focus on diversity, inclusion and equity, enriching Awardees’ educations and life experiences, advancing their careers and supporting them to make meaningful contributions in the U.S. and at home. Upon returning to Ireland, they share their stories and join hundreds of thousands of international alumni serving as leaders across the globe. Fulbright programs are wholly supported by Irish an U.S. Governments. Additional support from Irish agencies and higher education institutions has allowed for significant increase in award funding and diversity.”

The U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Edward F. Crawford: “The Fulbright program plays a crucial role in strengthening the unique relationship shared by the United States and Ireland. The durability of Fulbright is especially important during these challenging times.”

Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr Simon Coveney T.D.: Over the past 60 years, the Fulbright Programme has given thousands of individuals the opportunity to pursue educational exchanges between Ireland and the United States, deepening the links across the Atlantic. Fulbrighters have shared their ideas and culture, embarked on research and contributed to finding solutions to important international problems. Ireland is proud to support such an excellent programme, and I look forward to seeing the collaboration and connections which develop as a result of the 2021-2022 awards
