The Fulbright Commission Ireland is offering five €1000 grants to support Fulbright Alumni projects and events taking place before July 2023. All Irish and U.S. Fulbright Alumni are welcome to apply.
Proposed projects and events should be relevant to the applicant’s professional activities and have an Ireland-U.S. focus. We particularly welcome impactful community projects that focus on diversity, equality and inclusion, in line with the Fulbright ethos.
Only one grant will be awarded per project, and proposals must justify the value of the grant.
Successful applicants will be required to include the Fulbright logo in all promotional materials, and to acknowledge Fulbright support at events or in publications. The Fulbright Commission can offer further support in terms of social media promotion of related activities.
