Donate to support the next generation of Fulbrighters!

In 2024 we are celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Fulbright Program in Poland – the first country in Central and Eastern Europe where the Program started operating. We are immensely proud of the achievements of our 5000 Polish and American alumni, as well as the impact of the program on academia and communities in both Poland and the United States. As we believe in the good that it brings and are committed to continue building a bridge between Poland and the U.S., we’re inviting you to join our celebration by donating to the “65 for 65” anniversary fundraiser.

Our goal is to collect $65,000 to bring young Americans to Poland so that they can support building a more inclusive society by teaching English especially in smaller academic centers.

65000 USD

While the Fulbright Program remains predominantly government-funded, unfortunately we are not immune to the market situation. Cumulated inflation in Poland since 2020 has reached roughly 40% (!), while our funding remains at the same level.

Help us fulfill our mission and bring as many Americans to Poland as possible every year.

With $65,000 we can fund 5.5 yearly scholarships for Fulbright English Teaching Assistants (ETAs) who play a vital role not only in teaching American English to Polish students but also in familiarizing Polish people with the diversity of American culture firsthand.

Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Program

English Teaching Assistants are U.S. college graduates and professionals who teach and co-teach language classes at universities and institutions of higher education across the country. They improve their students’ English language abilities and knowledge of the United States while increasing their own language skills and knowledge of Poland. During their 9-months stay, the grantees engage in the local communities of their host cities, establishing many personal and professional connections, which in many cases last longer than the grant itself.
