Exchange alumni smile…. a lot! We see pearly whites in selfies with Senator John McCain, at Tumblr headquarters (while talking about girls in tech fields!), and everywhere in between.

When applying for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, Lauren Gaydosh was skeptical of her chances. She didn’t think she fit the profile of “typical” Fulbright participant, but she was awarded a Study/Research grant to Tanzania for 2012-2013!

For proof of the diverse pool of exchange participants from around the world, look no further than our alumni community!
