Promoting US Study Opportunities in Constanta

The presentation entitled “Study and Research Opportunities for Students and Academics” designed for the students and academics of Ovidius University of Constanta took place on Friday, October 10, as part of the agenda offered by the biennial RAAS – Fulbright Conference. Corina Danaila, Romanian Program Coordinator and part-time EducationUSA adviser, provided information to an active audience interested to receive specific details on graduate and postgraduate study and research programs in the US.  The students learned about the two directions they can choose in order to pursue graduate studies in the U.S. – applying for a Fulbright Student Award or directly to programs with funding from US universities. The academics received details on the ongoing Fulbright Senior Award competition for visiting scholars which is open until November 10. It was also an occasion for the participants to learn more about the online and direct resources and services provided by the Fulbright Educational Advising Center, which is part of Education USA network and offers guidance to high school students, undergraduates and graduates planning to study in the U.S.

The Fulbright Educational Advising Team Delivers Presentations in Timişoara and Iaşi

Touring the country on the occasion of the fall edition of RIUF (the Romanian International University Fair), the Fulbright Educational Advising Center/FEAC team made special visits to a number of universities - Universitate de Vest, Universitatea Politehnica din Timisoara, as well as Universitatea Alexandru Ioan Cuza and Universitatea Tehnica Gheorghe Asachi din Iasi – as part of our new outreach campaign. The four presentations delivered by FEAC representatives on October 6 in Timisoara and October 8 in Iasi focused on the two major pathways to U.S. study opportunities: Fulbright grants and independent graduate applications (for degree-seeking applicants). In each of these two major university centers, we engaged in a conversation with an audience made up of senior researchers and graduate students, but also had an opportunity to connect with undergraduate students as well.
