Event description

Description

In commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program in Australia and the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Walk, the 2019 Fulbright Gala Presentation Dinner will take place on Thursday 28 February at Parliament House, Canberra.

The 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 address. The keynote address will be provided by Col Pamela A. Melroy, USAF (ret), former NASA Astronaut.

The Scholar Showcase (from 6:00pm) 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 the brightest minds in Australia and America. Scholars will present their research through posters designed to facilitate conversation.

A Gala Dinner will follow (7pm arrival for a 7:15pm start) with an inspiring keynote address, and an opportunity to celebrate our newest Australian and American scholars.

Please note that due to the security processes at Parliament House, all guests must register in advance for this event and carry photo ID with them.
