Kosovo United States Alumni (KUSA) hosted the Fulbright Kosovo Networking Event on May 26th, 2022, at Restaurant Perla – Te Linda as part of the United States Kosovo Educational Exchange Board (USKEB). This event came as an opportunity to allow Fulbright alumni and grantees to network with other Fulbrighters, U.S. Embassy Representatives, and MESTI representatives.
Apart from networking with one another, participating alumni also had the opportunity to meet and speak with the U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo, Mr. Jeffrey M. Hovenier.
When it comes to the impressions on the event, Ambassador Jeffrey M. Hovenier stated: “The Fulbright Program is our flagship U.S. exchange program for a reason. It was inspiring to meet so many amazing United States-Kosovo Educational Exchange Board – USKEB alumni. The U.S. & Kosovo’s joint contributions to their education are the best possible investment in Kosovo’s future.”
