Fulbright Visiting Scholar Dinner Hosting

Citizen Diplomacy and our team of volunteer Citizen Diplomats welcome international Fulbright Scholars in spring each year. Our network of volunteers provide dinner hospitality for Fulbright students while they are in Philadelphia for a weekend-long leadership seminar. For many students, it is thier firs time visitng Philadelphia. 

The Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program provides grants to approximately 850 foreign scholars from over 100 countries to conduct post-doctoral research at U.S. institutions from an academic semester to a full academic year.  Sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright Program provides funding for students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.
Over 130 of the brightest students from around the world participating in the largest U.S. international exchange program look forward to meeting you!
