Spanish Fulbrighters on the Verge of their American Adventure

Participants

A group of Spanish students, scholars, and teachers who have been awarded Fulbright scholarships visited the residence of the Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Madrid for a traditional barbeque lunch as part of an orientation prior to their departure for the United States.  The Fulbrighters were welcomed by representatives of the Embassy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Spain, the Andorran Fulbright Committee, the Spanish Fulbright Alumni Association, and private-sector companies and sponsors of the scholarships.  Chargé d’Affaires Kris Urs congratulated the Fulbrighters on their selection, and encouraged them to take full advantage of their educational and cultural experiences in America.
