Prepare for Post-COVID-19 International Exchanges With Three ACE Webinars
March 29, 2021

​A series of April webinars, presented in cooperation with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, a German political foundation, will examine the future of international exchanges with regards to scholars programs like Fulbright, student programs, and professional exchanges.

On April 1, join a panel of international exchange experts, program participants, and campus leaders for a discussion of the post-pandemic impact of scholars programs, highlighting the Fulbright Program, a government-funded exchange initiative, as well as international exchange programs in general, and focusing on the U.S.-European Union relationship. Seventy-five years ago, ACE worked to support the creation and passage of Senator J. William Fulbright’s scholarship program, intended to advance mutual understanding of U.S. democracy both at home and overseas. International exchange of scholars will be as important as ever in the post-pandemic world.

Then on April 15, attend a webinar on how the pandemic has impacted all types of student exchanges: long-term, short-term, and project-based programs. Panelists will address a wide range of issues, including health and safety; the impact of technology; and the linking of student exchanges with broader institutional goals, including racial justice and climate change.
