Fulbright 2021 Grantees Ceremony

Chargé d’Affaires Kristin M. Kane hosted, on July 15th, 2021, the Fulbright Portugal Commission‘s scholarship award ceremony.

The event, conducted by Public Affairs Officer Penny Rechkemmer, also featured messages from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal, Augusto Santos Silva; the Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education, Manuel Heitor; and the Executive Director of the Fulbright Commission, Otília Reis.

We highlight the diversity of backgrounds, experience, and projects of this year’s extraordinary group of fellows, who explore space, research climate change, and study the remote conservation of deep-sea ecosystems, among other topics, while representing the link between the United States of America and Portugal.
