About Us

The mission of the Kansas City Chapter of the Fulbright Association is to advocate for the Fulbright Program, foster community among Fulbright alumni and Friends of Fulbright in both Kansas and Missouri, and promote international education through our local communities. Our vision is a world where international exchange is widely recognized as a force for peace.

Kansas City Chapter of the Fulbright Association

Chartered on September 9, 2021, the Kansas City Chapter of the Fulbright Association is a two-state chapter serving Fulbright alumni, Visiting Scholars, and friends of international exchange in Kansas and Missouri. The chapter is focused on hosting engaging programs and events to foster a vibrant Fulbright community throughout the two-state region. Our Chapter is closely affiliated with universities, colleges, and international organizations in the region, and often co-sponsors programs with these institutions.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion which fosters peace and understanding abroad, and among the diverse communities here in the United States. We produce and facilitate a variety of programs to appeal to our membership, and the communities in which we work and live. Read our president's lettre.

Our membership includes Friends of Fulbright, who may not be alumni but have a passion for understanding others and fostering peace at home and abroad. Our member institutions often collaborate with us on programs and are an important link to international communities of scholars, teachers, and students who are in Kansas and Missouri to conduct research, teach, and learn.

Our Chapter doors are open to all.
