Subject: It's getting down to the wire, <<First Name>>

Dear <<First Name>>,

We’re getting down to the wire: the Senate and House Appropriations Committees and their subcommittees on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs are in session and have begun to deliberate on the future of the Fulbright Program.

Congressional staffers have taken note of our 26,000 signatures, but now it is time for each and every US signatory to step up for one last, big push. The voices of individual constituents count with Congress!

As an American, we now need you to write emails to your elected officials to ask them to restore the funding for the Fulbright program to its 2014 level of $234 million. It's an easy three step process:

  1. Find your Senator and Representative and their contact info through this handy tool.
  2. If they are on the list below they sit on the Committee and it's REALLY important you write them. You can download a template and ideas what to write them hereIf your representative is not on that list, we still need your help to save the Fulbright Program. Click here for a template to send your Representative.
  3. Send them a letter, email, fax or call to urge them to restore the funding for Fulbright! Again, you can find their contact info here (it's a webform, usually)

We’ll keep you updated on the results of the deliberations as they emerge; let’s show the members of the subcommittees how much America values the Fulbright Program!

As an American, you speak for all of us Fulbright Alums! Thank you,
Yussi
