Fulbrighters to be Celebrated at 2008 APA Convention

The broad international outreach begun with APA President Sharon Brehm’s invitations to all presidents of national psychology associations to attend convention in 2007 (see article here) and will continue in 2008 as President-Elect Alan Kazdin extends a warm invitation to colleagues who have been Fulbright scholars, fellows and students. On behalf of President-Elect Kazdin, the Office of International Affairs is in the process of extending invitations to those US faculty and students who went abroad as Fulbright scholars or students and to those international colleagues who came to the US as Fulbrighters over the last 10 years.

In addition to the Fulbrighters, colleagues from the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) and the Institute of International Education (IIE) who run the Fulbright programs, and from the Fulbright Academy of Science and Technology (FAST) an international alumni association across the sciences, will be on hand to help explain, celebrate and promote such international collaborative experiences.
