Each year, One To World honors outstanding individuals who have furthered Senator J. William Fulbright’s vision of peace through intercultural awareness and understanding at the One To World Fulbright Awards Dinner. The late Senator Fulbright was honored at this event in 1993, and Harriet Mayor Fulbright continues to serve as Honorary Chair in his memory.
The One To World Fulbright Awards Dinner is a benefit event aimed at raising money for One To World programs and awareness of the Fulbright program. Awards are presented by visiting Fulbright grantees currently affiliated with New York area academic institutions before an audience of over 400 international leaders in business, higher education, the arts, government, and you!
This year, One To World is proud to honor
