SAVE congratulates board member and former Chair Joe Falk on his appointment today by President Barack Obama as a member of the William Fulbright Scholarship Board.
Appointed by the President of the United States, the 12-member J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board was established by Congress to supervise the global Fulbright Program as authorized by the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961. It meets quarterly in Washington, DC to supervise the prestigious Fulbright scholarship program.
In addition to serving for many years on SAVE's Board of Directors, including a stint as its Chair, Joe is an openly gay businessman and a member and prolific contributor to the local and national LGBT movements.
SAVE applauds President Obama on his strong record of LGBT appointments to his administration. We wish Joe the best of luck as he assumes the responsibilities of his new role.
