Eric Halsey Joins Fulbright Bulgaria Commission Board

We are happy to welcome Fulbright alumnus Eric Halsey as the newest member of the Board of the Bulgarian Fulbright Commission.

Eric is the host of the Bulgarian History Podcast and the managing director of The Halsey Company, providing marketing expertise and assistance to businesses around the world. He also occasionally lectures on career development and Bulgarian history, acts in TV and commercials, and lends his voice acting to projects like the Sofia Metro.

With degrees from the University of Mary Washington and Central European University, as well as a year studying at the American University in Bulgaria, Eric has a long experience with international education which culminated in his 2012-2013 Fulbright research grant. Since then, he’s worked on peer to peer education projects in places like Nairobi Kenya, helping design courses on entrepreneurship and artificial intelligence. Whether writing, podcasting, lecturing, or designing courses, he always aims to help create the kind of mutual understanding and person-to-person communication which translates into true education.

Eric will provide expertise and assistance to the Bulgarian Fulbright Commission, and will help us shape our policies so that we excel in fulfilling our mission to improve intercultural relations, cultural diplomacy, and intercultural competence between the people of the United States and Bulgaria through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.

We are grateful and excited to have Eric join the Board and wish him success in promoting the values and goals of the Fulbright Program!
