Second Meeting of the U.S. Fulbright Grantees

The group of American Fulbright grantees present in Romania for the academic year 2014/2015 met for a second time this year, to participate in the Alumni Fair organized at the Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism. Together with the colleagues from the U.S. Embassy, the American professors and students met a large number of Romanian high school and university students interested to find out more about American universities and academic environment.  

With this occasion, the American grantees attended a concert at the Romanian Athenaeum and went on a sightseeing tour of Bucharest and visited Cotroceni Museum as well as Stirbey Palace on Saturday, November 22.

Cooperation between Fulbright Alumnus and Romanian Academics in the Area of Scientific Research

Professor Mohsen Razzaghi,  Professor and Head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Mississippi State University and a Fulbright grantee to Romania in 2011-2012 was an invited speaker for "The TIM Physics Conference" on 20-22, November 2014 in Timisoara.

On this occasion, Dr. Razzaghi met several Romanian colleagues from Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest and from National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering, discussing projects for the continuation of research work starting during the Fulbright grant in Romania. It was not the only purpose of the visit to Romania and let us quote Professor Razzaghi: “While in Timisoara, Dr. Constantin Bota from Department of Mathematics at Politechnica University of Timisoara asked me to join a group of scientists to put together, the foundations of a Romanian-American Center of Applied Sciences, in Timisoara. The main purpose of this Centre is to allow research collaborations between our Universities as well as other Universities, participation in research grants, organization of Conferences, etc.”

News from Romanian Fulbrighter Monica Got

The beginning of November was an especially busy time for Fulbrighters in California, with two important Fulbright-related events taking place in Malibu and Los Angeles, respectively. As the only Romanian Fulbright scholar in the Southern California region (and all of California, most probably), I was fortunate enough to represent Romania on both occasions.

The first event, on November 1, was organized by the International Visitors Council of Los Angeles (IVCLA), with all Fulbrighters in California being invited to take part in the Annual Fulbright Luncheon hosted in Malibu, at the residence of Dr. and Mrs. Amarjit Marwah. Fulbright scholars were thus offered the opportunity to make new connections and partake in interesting exchanges with IVCLA members, staff and guests, Consular Corps officials and IVCLA International Visitors, all while enjoying a beautiful day overlooking the stunning Malibu coast.
