Welcome to the Irish Fulbright Alumni Association website
The Irish Fulbright Alumni Association (IFAA) is a voluntary association of past and present participants in the Fulbright Scholarship exchange programme that operates between the USA and Ireland. As such, it is a network of people who have been enriched by a significant educational experience and who come together, following their stay in the USA, to share both professionally and socially.
