We Love Reading Founder Dr. Rana Dajani was one of seven outstanding Fulbright alumni to receive the inaugural IIE Global Changemaker Award, in honor of the 70th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program. The award is designed to recognise the achievements of the individuals throughout their careers, and highlight the impact that the Fulbright program has had throughout its history.
Dr. Dajani is a two-time Fulbright scholar, participating first in the Fulbright Foreign Student Program in 2000, and then in the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program in 2012. “We applaud these Fulbright alumni not only for what they have achieved, but for their continued commitment to transform society and humanity through their work,” said Allan E. Goodman, president and CEO of IIE.
Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 370,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential—with the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
The program aims to build relations between the people of the United States and the people of other countries, impacting local communities and the world by providing innovative and inclusive educational exchange opportunities for current and future leaders.
