Ambassador Shapiro Celebrates with Fulbright Awardees and Leading Israeli Academics

Group gathers to mark Fulbright’s contributions to the U.S.-Israel relationship


U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro hosted the  recipients of the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship at his residence yesterday evening. The annual celebration marked the end of the school year, but was also a sendoff for the scholars, who will travel to the United States for the 2015/2016 school year. The event was also attended by senior representatives of Israeli academic institutions, many Fulbright alums themselves.

“We continue to believe that the contacts made through educational exchange programs are essential to the deep relations between the U.S. and Israel,” Ambassador Shapiro noted. “The Fulbright program brings together the greatest minds from the United States with the very best of Israel.”
