Fulbright New Zealand is conducting a comprehensive survey of its alumni to provide feedback on the impacts and benefits of Fulbright exchanges, facts, figures and anecdotes for the promotion of Fulbright awards, and direction for the ongoing engagement of alumni. All alumni are encouraged to complete the internet survey to help us better shape services to applicants, grantees and alumni in future.
The first part of the three part survey records details of exchanges, including the nature, destination and duration of the participant’s exchange, and identification of any family members who accompanied them. Outputs are measured in terms of talks given, published works and the creation or exhibition of artworks. Alumni are given a chance to evaluate the opportunities they encountered during and as a result of their Fulbright exchange, and the personal and professional qualities they developed by participating in the Fulbright programme.
The second part of the survey measures engagement of alumni and their willingness to give back to Fulbright New Zealand in various ways. Alumni are invited to indicate the kinds of activities that appeal to them most, and to make suggestions towards planning of celebrations for Fulbright New Zealand’s 65th anniversary in September 2013.
Finally, qualitative statements are sought to assist with promotion, business development, reporting and awareness-raising activities that are important to Fulbright New Zealand’s ongoing success. Included in this section are instructions for alumni to contribute long-form reminiscences and photographs for use in publications and online.
The alumni survey is open for a limited time, until Friday 23 November. To complete the online survey please visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/6G3PXN6.
Results will be collated and a report summarising findings published early in the new year.
