Alum Contacts

With over 2,000 alumni of the Fulbright Ireland program, the Commission has an active community of Fulbrighters in Ireland and abroad.

Alumni are now easily searchable on the website. We encourage all Fulbright Alum to send us updated biographies and images for their profiles.

We also encourage Alum to help spread the word about their own Fulbright achievement by mentioning their Fulbright status in e-signatures, social media profiles, and biographies for articles and events.

Please do keep us informed of your activities and whereabouts so we can continue to build the network. We always love to hear updates and are happy to share events, exhibitions, or lectures that you may be involved with. Please email to share information or update your Alum profile.


The Irish Fulbright Alumni Association (IFAA) is a voluntary association of past and present participants in the Fulbright Scholarship exchange program that operates between the USA and Ireland. As such, it is a network of people who have been enriched by a significant educational experience and who come together, following their stay in the USA, to share both professionally and socially.


Join Fulbrighter, the Fulbright Program’s exclusive platform for current and former participants. Expand your network, meet program alums, and become part of a vibrant global community!
