FEAC Participation @ RIUF in Brasov

On Thursday, March 23, the FEAC advising team took part in the final leg of the spring edition of RIUF (Romanian International University Fair). Dozens of visitors inquired about study options in the U.S., including many 9th graders but also graduating seniors. They received counseling with regard to the independent application process and the Fulbright program and were warmly encouraged to use our online advising services via Skype calls or regularly scheduled webinars. The Transilvania University of Brasov hosted our presentation about the Fulbright Student Award and independent graduate applications, thus continuing a long tradition of cooperation between the Office for International Relations and the Fulbright Commission. This year most attendees voiced an interest in graduate programs in STEM fields and business administration, while prospective undergraduate applicants indicated a growing interest in social sciences and humanities.

FEAC-EducationUSA Team Connects with Students and Researchers in Cluj-Napoca

This week, the FEAC-EducationUSA team was present in Cluj-Napoca for the second leg of the spring edition of RIUF (Romanian International University Fair). We took this opportunity to reach out to a variety of audiences in Cluj, one of the most prestigious academic centers in the country.
On March 20, we met with high schoolers interested in studying in the U.S at the American Corner in Cluj, which has so generously hosted FEAC’s presentations for many years. Over 90 students (9th to 11th graders) from several secondary schools in Cluj had a chance to learn more about the U.S. higher education system and received advice on how to best approach the application process, so as to enhance their chances of getting financial aid.  We encouraged prospective applicants to take advantage of the newest test preparation materials which await them at the local American Corner and to keep in touch with the FEAC team via online advising.
