About the Chapter
Fulbrighters with Disabilities is a chapter under the Fulbright Association that believes in bringing the Fulbright mission through diversity and full inclusion. Our collective experience in overcoming the academic challenges and adversities faced by those with visible and invisible disabilities helps provide a path to success for all scholars with disabilities. We are a 501c3 organization sponsored through the Dept. of State.
