On September 29, the U.S. Embassy in Cyprus will celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the worldwide Fulbright Program with a reception inside the UN buffer zone. Prominent alumni from both the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities will attend, along with representatives of various ministries, institutions of higher education, and others who make the continuation of the Fulbright Program possible. At the event, the Ambassador will present awards to two outstanding alumni who received their education and training in the United States and have been pivotal in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Cyprus.
Since the program began in Cyprus in 1962, more than 700 Cypriots received graduate degrees through the Fulbright Program, while over 1,700 more received undergraduate degrees through the Cyprus America Scholarship Program (CASP) - a unique educational exchange program administered by the Fulbright Commission in Cyprus. An additional 760 American scholars have visited Cyprus for research, professional collaboration, English teaching assistance, and cultural exchanges. Embassy Cyprus has been highlighting its outstanding alumni throughout the year on its social media.
