FEAC-EducationUSA Adviser Connects with Students and Researchers in Suceava

This Monday, May 29, one half of the FEAC-EducationUSA advising team was present in Suceava for a series of outreach presentations, highlighting teaching and research opportunities in the United States via the Fulbright Awards, as well as independent study opportunities at an undergraduate or graduate level.
In the first half of the day, the FEAC adviser met with high schoolers interested in studying in the U.S., at two top high schools in Suceava, “Petru Rareş” National College and “Ştefan cel Mare” National College. An overall audience of roughly 90 students – mainly 10th and 11th graders - attended the two presentations, which highlighted the distinguishing traits of the U.S. higher education system and provided students with advice on how to best approach the application process, so as to enhance their chances of getting financial aid. Several voiced an interest in the U.S. as a study destination and were happy to learn they can keep in touch with the FEAC-EducationUSA team via online advising.

FEAC Connects to High School and College Students in Oradea

On May 22-23, the FEAC representative had the pleasure of meeting with students from two high schools in Oradea, with the kind support of Oradea County Library, which also boasts an American shelf section. The first part of the presentation covered undergraduate admissions, while the second part dealt with graduate study opportunities in the U.S. The Fulbright award program and other research and study opportunities were presented to an audience made up of grad school hopefuls both at the American Shelf as well as at the University of Oradea, thanks to the university’s International Relations Office. All presentations greatly benefited from the support of not one, but two Fulbright English Teaching Assistants, Damaris Bangean and Anna Claspy, who were glad to share their insight and inside information with dozens of prospective Romanian applicants.

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.
