Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission & EducationUSA at ISD Fall 2017 in Braşov

On November 9 the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC)-EducationUSA concluded this year’s fall edition of the International Study Day (ISD) tour, alongside the British Council, Campus France and DAAD, with two presentations in Braşov, at “Dr. Ioan Meşotă” National College and “Andrei Şaguna” National College.
A total 100 students from both schools – mainly 10th and 11th graders - attended the two presentations. The FEAC-EducationUSA adviser provided them with an overview of the American higher education system, the application process and forms of financial aid, also highlighting graduate study opportunities. We also encouraged them to keep in touch with the FEAC-EducationUSA advising team and took this opportunity to advertise the newly launched competition for the EducationUSA Opportunity Funds program.
The International Study Day project consists of a series of outreach presentations jointly organized by the British Council, Campus France DAAD, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright-EducationUSA center in Bucharest in various cities throughout the country, targeting the underserved student population.

A Hyphenated American

Chealin Won, Fulbright ETA Student, affiliated with the University of Craiova, has recently made a presentation for students of the American Studies Department at the University of Bucharest. “With a presentation titled, 'A Hyphenated American,' I shared with the class my Korean-American Identity and how it has shaped my life. With a focus on the diversity of the United States, I 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. I also made a connection with the students by asking the class to share about how they understand their Romanian (or Polish, Serbian, Moldovan) identity. This led to a larger discussion on citizenship and national identity.”

While discussion was encouraged throughout the workshop, at the end the in-center participants, as well as our Opportunity students joining us online from Iaşi and Bacău, had a chance to ask questions and get feedback on their essay drafts or on topics they proposed to approach in their essays.
