2017 Fulbright Gala Presentation Dinner

Australia’s capital city lit up last week for the 2017 Fulbright Gala Presentation Dinner at Parliament House, Canberra. The event, coinciding with 2017 International Women’s Day, began with a thought-provoking Welcome to Country by Michelle Deshong, 2015 Fulbright Professional Indigenous Scholar, and featured a compelling, impassioned keynote speech from April Palmerlee, Director of Events and Partnerships at the University of Sydney’s U.S. Studies Centre and the first U.S. Ambassador-at-large.
