Promoting the Fulbright Senior Award Program for Romanian Applicants

This October most actions connected with the Fulbright program for Romanian citizens have focused on the Fulbright Senior Award promotion as well as on advising activities devoted to prospective applicants.
Beyond the online program promotion performed on a daily basis by the Fulbright staff, a series of direct presentations took place at the University of Bucharest, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Politehnica University of Bucharest, West University of Timisoara, Bucharest University of Economic Studies, and Transilvania University of Brasov. In that respect, constant communication with the Fulbright Ambassadors from different academic centers represented a key element in planning and running such activities which contributed to a better interaction with the potential candidates. For instance the events held in Iasi and Timisoara were organized by Drs. Sorina Chiper, Cristina Cheveresan and Bogdan Tulbure - Romanian Fulbright Ambassadors and members of their universities’ teaching staff - who generously offered useful competition details, know-how and recommendations to their colleagues. At the Politehnica University and ASE in Bucharest participants also benefited from the advice of the Fulbright Ambassadors: Professors Mihaela Albu and Mariana Nicolae.

Fulbright Ambassador at the University of Bucharest

roxana olteanOn the 1st of October, the Fulbright Commission, with its mission and values, was present at the Opening Ceremony of the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures through the message delivered by Dr. Roxana Oltean, Fulbright Ambassador at the University of Bucharest. During the ceremony, moderated by the Dean of the Faculty, Professor dr. Liviu Franga, and held in the presence of the Rector of the University of Bucharest, Professor dr. Mircea Dumitru, of Vice-Rectors and of the Vice-Deans of the Faculty, dr. Oltean addressed faculty and students, dwelling on the history, projects and achievements of the Fulbright Commission on the world stage in general and in Romania in particular, and especially invoking the Commission’s role in advancing the cause of mutual international understanding, tolerance and support between the US and the partner countries. In this sense, a key aspect of the intervention was the manner in which the Fulbright Commission is committed to building bridges between academic and general communities, thus also contributing to the development of the host countries. Showing that the Commission’s influence extends far beyond the academic programs and exchanges, dr. Oltean emphasized, in essence, the wider significance of the spirit of what Senator Fulbright called “international goodwill” at the heart of the Commission’s projects and activities.
