Pre-Departure Orientation for the 2016-2017 Romanian Fulbright Grantees and Independent Students

On July 5, 2016, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission hosted its Pre-departure Orientation Seminar devoted to the Romanian Fulbright grantees and independent students leaving for the U.S. to study or conduct research in the academic year 2016-2017.

The proceedings started with a series of welcome speeches by distinguished guest speakers representing the U.S. Embassy in Romania, the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Fulbright Board of Directors and the Romanian academia who gave their heartfelt remarks and congratulated the grantees.

The agenda was intense and comprehensive: Romanian and US Fulbright Alumni participated in several panel discussions, offering practical information to the current grantees preparing to start their U.S. Fulbright experience. We were also joined by a representative of the Consular Section of the US Embassy Bucharest who provided specific details and advice on J&F visas. Last, but not least, this year’s orientation session had a special significance since it brought together, in a special panel, recent and very recent alumni who shared personal impressions about their grant, as well as about their return to Romania and re-adjustment.

We wish all the best to the 2016-2017 group of Romanian students and scholars and look forward to hearing from them as they embark on their experience in the U.S.!
