Act Locally

A. Fulbright Talks and Reunion

Organize a local event or activity in your campus or city during 2017. Consider a brown bag, small reception, panel, lecture, movie, etc. All academic topics are welcomed. The overall theme is “Leadership Challenge: Equity, Ethics, and Globalization.”


B. Fulbright Tree Planting Initiative

April 21, 2016 a tree was planted on Capitol Hill in DC Honoring Senator Fulbright. Fulbright Taiwan would like to extend the idea to planting on as many campuses and school grounds as possible. Arrange to plant a tree in the Senator's honor on your campus or at your alma mater during 2017. A plaque will be donated by Fulbright Taiwan, and a record is kept.

Contact FSE for Help Plant a Tree

==Events in America TECO/TECRO can also help!==


2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the Fulbright Program in Taiwan. To commemorate this program that facilitates exchanges between the U.S. and Taiwan, a book project is currently in progress. This book will documents the history of Fulbright Taiwan, as well as the stories of both the U.S. and Taiwan grantees. With this in mind, we would like to invite our alumni to write a short piece to share your Fulbright story: an experience, the impact on you or your career, an insight gained, an observation, etc.

This article will be included in the alumni stories. The normal length is around 600-800 words. Our staff and the Executive Director will help with editing or translation if needed. We hope to get the article by before May 1st, so that we have some time to work on the design and formatting.

Plant a Tree

Honor the Fulbright Program and Senator Fulbright and Help the Environment

Join your colleagues around the U.S. and Taiwan. Donate and plant a tree at your university, school, business location, public park, government office, etc.


Anytime in 2017! We recommend spring or fall as the best planting seasons. Plant a decent size tree 1-4 inches. Choose a variety native to and emblematic of your location! Talk to the landscape planner/grounds keeper for hints. Care for it!

Use the tree planting to reach out to all Fulbright alumni, both on campus and graduates. Or, simply arrange a planting to add a little beauty and capture a little carbon! To go along, arrange a brown bag, small reception, panel, lecture, movie, etc. to talk about the Taiwan or the Fulbright vision. Perhaps an International Education Office, Development Offices, or East Asian Program would like participate.

Fulbright Taiwan will provide a commemorative plaque (bronze in the U.S., stainless in Taiwan). You can see the wording and picture here.

Keep us informed. Check below to see the record of tree plantings in the U.S., Taiwan, and perhaps around the world!!

Celebrate the 60th with Fulbright Taiwan! Our vision is:
“a world with a little more knowledge and a little less conflict.
