CPD Board Member Appointed to Fulbright Board
On January 11, President Barack Obama announced his intent to appoint CPD Advisory Board member Markos Kounalakis to serve on the 12-member J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. The Board was established by Congress to supervise the global Fulbright Program.
Representing diverse facets of American society, Board members select students, scholars, teachers, and others from the United States and abroad to participate in Fulbright exchanges. In close relationship with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. embassies, bilateral Fulbright Commissions in host countries and the U.S. Department of Education’s International and Foreign Language Office of Postsecondary Education, the Board prepares an annual report and promotes the Fulbright Program to audiences around the world. The Board also meets quarterly to establish policies for Fulbright selection and operating procedures.
