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

On May 24, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC)-EducationUSA checked another city in our spring edition of the International Study Day (ISD) tour, alongside the British Council, Campus France and DAAD, with two presentations in Piteşti, at the University of Piteşti and “Zinca Golescu” National College.
An assorted audience of about 40 undergraduate students and high schoolers from “Ion C. Brătianu” National College attended the first presentation and were happy to learn about the Fulbright Student Award, as well as independent study opportunities in the U.S., at an undergraduate or graduate level. An average 30-strong high school students joined us for the second presentation, keen to discover the path to studying in the U.S., as well as Europe. The FEAC-EducationUSA adviser provided them with an overview of the American higher education system, the application process and forms of financial aid, and encouraged them to take advantage of the Fulbright Educational Advising Center’s resources and services.
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.

Professor Adina Ciugureanu at Columbia University

Professor Adina Ciugureanu, “Ovidus” University, Constanta is the recipient of the second Fulbright grant in 2017, at the University of California Santa Barbara. In this capacity, she held a conference on Ovid, the Latin poet, whose death, 2000 years ago, is commemorated this year, at Columbia University, New York and Arkansas State University-Beebe, as part of the OLF program. Her lecture, entitled, “The Legacy of Ovid, the Latin poet, on the Black Sea Region” was concerned with Ovid’s poetry written during his exile at Tomis and with its influence on the literature of the region, in general and on Romanian literature and culture, in particular. The talk was meant to familiarize the American students with the Latin roots of the Romanian language and with the 19th century Romanian reading of Ovid’s exilic poems in the larger context of Eastern Europe history and culture.

Final Meeting of the 2016–2017 U.S. Fulbright Grantees

The Final Meeting of the Year for the American Fulbright grantees present in Romania in 2016-2017 was hosted by Transilvania University of Brasov on May 15 and 16. The almost twenty U.S. Fulbright Senior Scholars, Students and ETA’s who are now in Romania came to Brasov from Bucharest, Cluj, Craiova, Timisoara, Iasi, Constanta, Baia Mare and Oradea. They presented at the Multicultural Center of Transilvania University their teaching and research activities, as well as a remarkable series of events in which they were part or actually organized, including participation in conferences, writing of articles and volunteering work.

Once again this year, Fulbright grantees reached an impressive variety of places and environments, from big cities and universities to isolated villages, an intense exchange of knowledge, ideas and feelings taking place among the American professors and students and a very diverse Romanian public.

The Fulbright grantees, as well as this outstanding generous and intense Program, deserve all our gratitude.
