Fulbright Grantees in Hungary, AY 2012-2013

Written by Fulbright on 11/20/2013. Posted in News

The Fulbright Grantee class of 2012/13 went on farewell cruise on the Danube in Budapest in May, 2013. They did not know ahead of time that they would have to answer questions spontaneously, such as:

  • Why Hungary?
  • What did you do during your free time?
  • What will you do when you return to the States?
  • What is your favorite food?
  • What did your family do all day?

To hear their answers, watch the full film (28 minutes) or check out their videos one by one (not all AY 12/13 grantees were on the cruise). Our alumni members are the best source of information on what it is like being Fulbrighter in Hungary, please look them up!
