Farewell to American Fulbrighters in Poland 2017

On June 9th in the Warsaw Banker’s Club a celebration took place summarizing the stay of this year’s American recipients of the Fulbright scholarship in Poland. Paul Jones (pictured above), the U.S. Ambassador in Poland, Professor Lukasz Szumowski (the following picture, center stage), representing the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, employees of the Polish-American Fulbright Commission with its executive director Justyna Janiszewska (first from the right on the group photo) as well as members of our Association’s board (the picture shows their two-generational representation in the company of Scott Whitmore, the recently appointed acting attaché for the U.S. Embassy’s cultural affairs department, and who knows what’s next…) participated in the event. The three female Polish winners of the new Fulbright Commission Program, which involves the financing of a full course of studies in the U.S., posed for a commemorative photoshoot.
