News from Sînziana Popescu, 2018-2019 Fulbright Student Researcher @UCLA

"During my first two months in Los Angeles I had the privilege to experience firsthand the UCLA core values, namely the commitment to the pursuit of scientific excellence and innovation, as well as its application towards the betterment of societal challenges. As a Fulbright visiting researcher in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, I hope that my research in the field of tissue engineering will one day provide solutions to the biomedical issues I am studying.

Being a Fulbrighter has granted me access to the most incredible network of people, as I had the pleasure to discover during the generous Luncheon hosted by Dr. Amarjit Marwah in his lovely residence in Malibu. This event enabled many of the 2018-2019 Fulbright grantees from all over the world to meet and discuss our cultural backgrounds not just among ourselves but also with the American personalities present at the event. So far my experience in the USA has been amazing and I am confidently looking towards the future."

Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission & EducationUSA at ISD Galaţi

The Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the EducationUSA-affiliated Fulbright Educational Advising Center kicked off this year’s fall edition of the International Study Day (ISD) tour, alongside the British Council, Campus France, and DAAD, on November 16 with two presentations in Galaţi, at two of the city’s top schools - “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” National College and “Virgil Madgearu” Economic College.
An audience of about 60 students from both high schools attended our presentations, keen to learn more about study opportunities in the U.S., as well as Europe. We were happy to provide them with information on the American higher education system, the application process and financial aid, as well as ways in which FEAC-EducationUSA can help them navigate the process. We also took this opportunity to advertise our newly launched competition for next year’s EducationUSA - Opportunity Funds cohort.
The International Study Day project consists of a series of outreach presentations jointly organized by the British Council, Campus France, DAAD, and the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission in various cities throughout the country, targeting the underserved student population.
