Fulbright Forum

The Fulbright Forums serve as periodic gatherings for the Fulbright family at large, including past and present grantees and friends of the Korean-American Educational Commission. During these forums, Senior Scholars or Junior Researchers are able to present on their research and/or experiences in Korea. A light reception typically follows the presentation.
