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.

Fulbright Korea Infusion

Since the publication of its first volume in 2008, the Fulbright Korea Infusion has presented the literary, artistic and academic talents of Fulbright grantees and scholars. While Infusion is a showcase for the Fulbright Korea family, it also serves as the Korean-American Educational Commission’s annual forum for grantee news, journalism, research, literature, artwork, poetry, photography and video. The magazine aims to capture the diversity of the Fulbright Korea experience by publishing work from Fulbright Korea senior scholars, junior researchers, English teaching assistants and program alumni.
