USIEF has awarded around 19,000 Fulbright and other grants to U.S. and Indian scholars, professionals and students since its inception in 1950. The Fulbright family in India and in the U.S. has become a wide network of individuals who model academic and professional excellence. USIEF facilitates various alumni activities and maintains a database for alumni to develop closer and meaningful contacts.


USIEF encourages you to keep in touch! If you have a news to share, an idea to explore, a memory to re-visit, an article to publish or just about anything to say to us, please contact our alumni office. Keep us posted about any awards, publications or other honors you receive; help us tell our future Fulbrighters about our glorious past!  


We also welcome proposals from Indian alumni for cost-shared events in collaboration with current U.S. Fulbrighters in India.
