A few nights ago, fifty alumni and current grantees gathered at The Beastro in Hongdae to enjoy some great drinks and even better company. This was the largest gathering of Fulbright Korea alumni in recent memory.
In addition to new connections and lots of reminiscing on Fulbright experiences, an auction of donated Girl Scout cookies and the generosity of the community allowed us to raise 122,000 KRW for the Fulbright Korea Alumni Fund (FKAF)! These funds will go towards helping current grantees complete research projects and community projects, enabling them to engage with Korea and their local communities in a new and meaningful way.
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the Fulbrighters who joined us for the event and made it such a success! We enjoyed spending time with you and hope that the conversations that began at the event will continue well into the future.
We would love to hear more about Fulbright Korea meet-ups and gatherings back in the USA and/or other parts of the world. Please feel free to share stories here or email us!
From Coordinator Lauren Hong:
