The Institute of International Education (IIE) thought of the wonderful idea to kick off the academic year with delicious ice cream for new and returning Fulbrighters in the Washington, DC area. Luckily some AMIDEAST staff were able to sneak away from their desks (with supervisory approval, of course!) to spend some quality time with some of our students. It was great to change up the work routine and enjoy some dessert with some of our students in the area!

Spending time with our Fulbrighters is truly a highlight of the work that we do. Thanks to IIE for hosting us!
