US-UK Fulbright Alum Rishi Sunak enters 10 Downing Street

Commissioners and staff at the US UK Fulbright Commission congratulate Rishi Sunak on his appointment as Prime Minister, the first Fulbright Alumnus to occupy the highest seat of UK government.  A 2006 MBA graduate of Stanford University, California, he has been a supporter of the Commission and its programme of transatlantic academic exchange as a conduit for meaningful collaboration across the business, technological, scientific and cultural sectors.  He has reflected that his experience at Stanford “changed his life”, teaching him “to think bigger”.
