The 2017 Fulbright Gala Presentation Dinner is the signature event of the Fulbright calendar, formally introducing our newest Australian and American Scholars to the wider community. The evening will include a Scholar Showcase as well as a Gala Dinner with a keynote speaker.

The Scholar Showcase marks the beginning of the evening program, providing an informal opportunity for guests, partners, sponsors, alumni and stakeholders to meet the new scholars, to learn first-hand about their work, and to immerse themselves in the research and innovation of some of Australia’s and America’s greatest minds. Scholars will present their research through posters designed to facilitate conversation.

A Gala Dinner will follow with an inspiring keynote speaker, and an opportunity to celebrate our newest Australian and American scholars.
