TEDxFulbrightDublin is envisioned, orchestrated, and driven by volunteer leaders. The team takes the global nature of the Fulbright program literally, as members are currently located across two continents. The event is supported by the Fulbright Commission of Ireland, the US Embassy and the Irish Research Council. Other financial support stems from public and corporate partners which seek to uphold the mission of the Fulbright program and further develop the alumni base for continuous progress.
Oibrithe deonacha a chruthaigh, a d’eagraigh agus a sheol TEDxFulbrightDublin. Is mór ag an bhfoireann an gné dhomhanda de chlár Fulbright, agus tá na baill iad féin scaipthe idir dháilchríoch. Tugann Comisiún Fulbright na hÉireann, Ambasáid na Stát Aontaithe agus an Chomhairle Éireann Um Thaighde, tacaíocht don ócáid seo. Is ó chomhpháirithe poiblí agus corparáideacha a eascraíonn an chuid eile den tacaíocht airgeadais- compháirithe iad seo a bhfuil sé i gceist acu seasamh le haidhmeanna chlár Fulbright agus cur le gréasán na n-iarscoláirí ar mhaithe le forbairt leanúnach.
