Resignation from the Commission

Note from Sir Nigel Sheinwald, Chairman of the US-UK Fulbright Commission.

Toby Young got in touch shortly after resigning from the Office for Students to let me know that he’d like to stand down from the Fulbright Commission as well so he can concentrate on his work with free schools. I accepted his resignation, which I believe to be in the best interests of the Fulbright programme.  At the same time, my Commission colleagues and I recognise the positive contribution Toby made to the Commission's work since his appointment in 2013.
