Ambassador Mamet hosted a reception at his residence in honor of the 50 winners of the first edition of the Friends of Fulbright scholarship. Friends of Fulbright is an undergraduate student exchange program. During the event, the Ambassador thanked program sponsors as well as representatives from the universities where selected students come from. The students will travel to the United States in January to participate in a 6-to-8 week academic and cultural program.
The 50 winners of the 2016 edition attend 24 universities across the country, from Salta to Bahia Blanca, and represent nearly 20 cities. Students will study at the The University of Texas, The University of Central Arkansas, and Mount Holyoke College.
