    BRUSSEL 02/06 (BELGA) - Verschillende Belgische universiteiten hebben 
    dinsdagnamiddag deelgenomen aan een ondertekeningsceremonie in de 
    residentie van de Amerikaanse ambassadeur in België, Denise Campbell Bauer. 
    De universiteiten tekenden er de akkoorden die ze afgesloten hebben 
    met de Fulbright Commission. Die laatste maakt 
    studentenuitwisselingen mogelijk tussen België en de Verenigde Staten. Met dat 
    "memorandum of understanding" gaven de universiteiten van Antwerpen, Gent, 
    Hasselt, Leuven en Namen aan dat ze het Fulbright-programma mee gaan 
    financieren. In Brussel doen Saint-Louis en VUB mee.
    Per jaar kunnen met dat programma 30 à 40 studenten, doctorandi of 
    post-docs enkele maanden naar de VS om te studeren. De bedoeling van 
    initiatiefnemer J. William Fulbright was in 1946 om zo het wederzijds 
    begrip te versterken.
    Fulbright Belgium viert dit jaar zijn 67ste verjaardag. In totaal 
    heeft het programma al 3.000 Belgen naar de andere kant van de 
    Atlantische Oceaan gestuurd.
    Elke deelnemende universiteit besteedt per jaar tussen de 10.000 en 
    60.000 euro aan het partnerschap.

    I need to travel all over the USA for my work. That is a great opportunity to get in to touch with lots of fellow alumni of our Alma Mater. 

    Mid May I planned a visit to the San Francisco area. I was lucky to combine my business meetings with attending the regional alumni event organized in Stanford University. Ex-rector Mark Waer and Ex-rector Andre Oosterlinck gave a presentation on the status of the KU Leuven, followed by the official opening of the Belcham Bay Area chapter. 

    Great turnout!
