Programs: FAST has two major programs: study committees and public education/networking events. The Study Committees are funded by outside entities or conducted in partnership with universities and research institutes, and they bring together an international group of experts to address a particular issue. The networking events include the Fulbright Forum, a smaller meeting that generally attracts scientists and professionals from a particular region, and the annual FAST Research Conference, which attracts a worldwide participation. FAST also produces a newsletter, which is distributed electronically to thousands of people around the world.

Mission:
The Fulbright Academy of Science & Technology (FAST) is an international organization established by alumni of the prestigious Fulbright Exchange Program and other members of the science and technology community. Since 2003, FAST has facilitated dialogue among scholars and created opportunities for alumni to share their knowledge and better serve society.
Results:
Conferences and programs on five continents during our first five years.  Others value our work, as shown by in-kind contributions of $100,000-200,000/year from institutional partners.
