Proposed Fulbright Alumni Leadership Development Program

First we'd like to tell you about our proposed 2-day Leadership Development Program and ask you about your thoughts on this program.

The Fulbright Alumni 2-day Leadership Development Program would support a select group of AFAA members to:

·       Debrief, discuss, reflect on their personal and professional journeys following their Fulbright

·       Gain insight and a renewed sense of purpose about their role as community leaders

·       Generate action plans and a community of practice for influencing, engaging and implementing change

·       Bridge the gap between the Fulbright program and their practice as active global citizens creating positive social change

·       Develop an idea for implementation as AFAA’s Alumnus in Residence (inspired by the New York Fulbright Alumnus in Residence program)

·       Graduate from the Leadership Development Program as recognised ‘AFAA Fellows’.

The program would be based on a two-day residential leadership development program that Prof Jon Adams leads at Director of the Australian Research Centre in Complementary and Integrative Medicine at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).

Drawing on the “Alumnus in Residence Program” developed by the US Fulbright Association’s New York Chapter, all participants would develop an idea for implementation during AFAA’s Fulbright Alumni Leadership Development Program. All participants would vote to select one project for official endorsement by AFAA via the Alumnus in Residence Program.


UTS would provide $10,000 seed funding towards first year program event. Participants would invest in their own travel costs to attend the venue. AFAA would need to secure $22,000 top-up funding to help cover venue, accommodation, meals, Saturday dinner and the $2000 Alumnus in Residence project support fund. (The US State Department has offered to support an application to the Mission Driven Alumni Outreach competition; this program has been suspended during Coronavirus.)
