Headed to Washington, D.C.
Brian Sajko of Eureka has been named to the inaugural class of Fulbright Ambassadors by the Fulbright Scholar Program and will participate in an ambassadors’ orientation and strategic planning conference March 5-6 at Fulbright headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The conference will bring together Fulbright Scholars from across the United States who will be trained as goodwill ambassadors for the Fulbright Scholar Program. The ambassadors will promote the program to college and university faculty members and professionals and provide information about applying for Fulbright Scholarships.

The Fulbright Scholar Program was initiated in 1946 and is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The program sends 800 faculty members and professionals abroad each year to lecture and conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields to promote understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
