The Pioneers

Upon completing their studies, many Fulbright grantees return to their home countries and assume important leadership positions, take part in leading science and arts developments, and serve as voluntary cultural ambassadors. The “Pioneers” gallery focuses on grantees in the early years of Fulbright, during which time the program gained international prestige. The portrait series was compiled from the archives of the Turkish Fulbright Commission and enriched with inspiring personal stories. It provides a brief look into the Fulbrighter experience, as well as their great contributions to the fields of art, science and business.
