The current group of American Fulbright grantees consists of professors and students who teach and do research in the fields of American Studies, Public Administration, Engineering, Social Sciences & Social Work, Law, Public Health & Medical Sciences, Business Administration, Geology, American Studies, Theater, Physics, Political Science and English Teaching Assistantships at universities and institutions in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, Brasov, Constanta, Timisoara, Suceava, Bacau, Arad, Sibiu and Galati.

After the official part of the program on October 3, attended by U.S. and Romanian high officials, the U.S. grantees participated in this year’s edition of the biennial RAAS – Fulbright Conference entitled "Ideology, Identity, and the US: Crossroads, Freeways, Collisions", October 4-6, 2018.

This past weekend, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA took part in the Bucharest 2018 fall edition of the Romanian International University Fair (RIUF), a landmark on the map of educational fairs in Eastern Europe.
