Each year, One To World hosts the Fulbright Awards Dinner to honor those who, in the spirit of the late Senator J. William Fulbright, have furthered peace and international understanding through their lives and work. Harriet Mayor Fulbright serves as Honorary Chair and attends the event each year.
One To World utilizes the Fulbright Awards Dinner to raise awareness of the Fulbright program and its role in furthering peaceful relationships between peoples and cultures. Inaugurated in 1991, the Fulbright Awards Dinner takes place annually. Awards are presented by visiting Fulbright grantees currently affiliated with New York area academic institutions, before an audience of 500 international leaders in business, higher education, the arts, and government.
One To World’s 2017 Fulbright Awards Dinner will take place on Tuesday, May 23, at 583 Park Avenue where we will honor Dr. Madelyn Antoncic, Former Vice President and Treasurer of the World Bank; Jeffrey Beers, CEO and Founder of Jeffrey Beers International; the Hon. Frank Guarini, former Congressman from New Jersey and former U.S. Representative to the U.N. General Assembly; and Whitney Tilson, Founder and Managing Partner of Kase Capital Management.
