Bard College Berlin Rep Connects with Romanian Students in Bucharest

Bard College representative Salome Vacheishvili (Admissions Counselor and Recruitment Coordinator) was present in Bucharest this past week to connect with Romanian high school students. The Fulbright Educational Advising Center-EducationUSA team was happy to meet her again and assist her in her outreach efforts.
We accompanied our guest to three of the finest high schools in Bucharest - “St. Sava” National College, “George Coşbuc” National Bilingual College, and “I. L. Caragiale” National College -, where an average 60 students (mainly 10th and 11th graders) gathered to hear the presentations, eager to learn more about the Bard Berlin community and the path to studying at this American-style liberal arts college in Europe.
The attendees had a chance to learn more about Bard College Berlin’s rich academic offering, the admission process, the various forms of financial aid available for international applicants, and the Bard global network of campuses.
We took the opportunity to tell participants a few words about the resources awaiting them at FEAC-EducationUSA and ways we can help them in preparing strong applications to undergraduate programs in the U.S.

Last week one half of the FEAC-EducationUSA advising team was present in Iaşi to advertise study and research opportunities in the United States via the Fulbright Awards, as well as through independent applications.
On March 28, the FEAC adviser met with undergraduates and graduate students interested in pursuing a graduate program or in conducting research in the United States. The presentation, kindly hosted and co-organized by the Department of International Relations within the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iaşi, focused on the Fulbright Student Award for Romanian citizens, but also tackled questions about the Fulbright Senior Award competition, which is yet to be launched.
