From a Two-Year College to a Lifetime of Learning: What Fulbright Means to Me

Join the Community Colleges Chapter of the Fulbright Association for our inaugural event on

Monday, June 3, 2024 at 7 p.m. ET by Zoom.  Go here to join the meeting.

Formed in January, our chapter aims to advance the visibility of the Fulbright Program in America’s nearly 1,200 2-year community and technical colleges.

In this first gathering, we will introduce you to our chapter, its board and officers, and goals.   Following an introduction by president David J. Smith, George Mason University (Fulbright U.S. Scholar, Estonia 2003-2004), the program will continue with a discussion with a panel of board members who will discuss their experiences in the Fulbright Program.

The moderator will be Stephanie Hallock, Harford Community College (Fulbright Specialist 2023).  The panel will include:

  • Selina LeMay-Klippel, North Country Community College (Fulbright U.S. Scholar, Russia 2028)
  • Tabitha Morgan, Community College of Philadelphia (Fulbright U.S. Scholar, Mexico, 2021-2022)
  • Vincent L. Briley, Montgomery College (Fulbright U.S. – Germany  International Education Administrators Program, 2012)

Panelists will share their  experiences in the Fulbright Program including their motivation for applying and how it made a difference in their personal and professional lives. This will be followed by questions from the audience.

We invite all those interested in supporting  Fulbright Program awareness in community colleges to join us (even if  you have not received a grant).  Those who received grants as part of their post-undergraduate educational experiences (i.e., research based or ETA), as part of a Fulbright-Hays grant, and as a visiting Fulbright grantee are especially encouraged to join us.
