Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission & FEAC-EducationUSA at RIUF 2018 Spring Edition in Bucharest

This weekend, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA took part in the Bucharest 2018 spring edition of the Romanian International University Fair (RIUF), a landmark on the map of educational fairs in Eastern Europe. The Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and its EducationUSA-affiliated advising center were once again present at this year’s spring edition of RIUF in Bucharest, imparting information on undergraduate or graduate study opportunities in the U.S.
The FEAC-EducationUSA adviser also delivered a presentation during the fair, providing information on the Fulbright program and the path to studying in the U.S., at an undergraduate or graduate level.
The two-day event proved successful, with over 200 people stopping by our booth to inquire about study opportunities in the U.S., financial aid and the application process. All prospective applicants were also happy to learn more about the wide range of free resources and services that FEAC-EducationUSA provides, in order to assist them in the application process, as well as about our upcoming events.

Chealin’s Visit to Iasi

Following our initiative to have U.S. Fulbright grantees meet Romanian students and academic staff outside their Romanian university, Chealin Won, Fulbright ETA Student at the University of Craiova has recently been in dialogue with first, second, and third years students from "Alexandria Ioan Cuza" University in Iași. Chealin had the opportunity to share her personal narrative of being a "Hyphenated American." With a focus on the diversity of the United States, she shared statistics regarding the most recent racial census and led discussions about national-identity with a framework of the U.S. as an immigrant country. Chealin and the Romanian students then engaged in an open dialogue regarding Romanian identity in regards to the Roma population, what it means to be Romanian, what it means to be Roma, and what it means to live as citizens in a global world with documentation—recognizing the privileges that come from a piece of plastic of a small booklet.

 

Fulbright Presentations for Graduate Studies Hosted by Bucharest Universities

On Thursday, March 14, undergraduate and graduate students at two major universities in Bucharest had the opportunity to attend two presentations dedicated to the Fulbright Student competition for awards in the academic year 2019-2020 and to also find out more about U.S. graduate study opportunities. The first event took place at the Politehnica University of Bucharest, on the premises of The Faculty of Power Engineering. Another Fulbright presentation followed the same day, hosted by the Center for American Studies within the University of Bucharest. The participants received information about the path to studying in the U.S., either through applying for a Fulbright Student Award or through independently approaching U.S. universities. They also learned more about the Fulbright Commission’s activities, such as informative gatherings, online seminars and workshops, as well as about the resources available at our advising center, FEAC-EducationUSA.

New from Fulbright Student Researcher Ruxandra Sava

As an attendee of the Fulbright enrichment seminary on Global Health Initiatives, I had the privilege to listen to the impressive William Foege, the American epidemiologist that played a major role in the campaign leading to the eradication of small-pox. An amazing story teller, Dr. Foege publicly answered a question his 13 year old grand-daughter had asked him:

“If you died tomorrow, what is it you wish you could have told me?”
1. Pay attention to the people around you, be mindful, be respectful. Across your career, many people will approach you with their problems and proposals, be ready to show respect by listening to all of them.
2. Avoid certainty, the Achille’s heel of science and progress. Be ready to question both yourself and others.
3. Continue to learn, as opposite to being learnt, because the science of the learnt quickly becomes outdated.
4. Seek the truth, but know the limits of science – always practice science with a moral compass.
5. Home is not where you are from, home is where you are needed.
