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.

Fulbright ETA Media Literacy Seminar in Bulgaria, Nov 1-4

Earlier this month (November 1-4), our Fulbright ETAs participated in a region wide seminar on Media Literacy held in Sofia, Bulgaria. The conference featured a welcome reception at the U.S. Ambassador's residence, presentations on how to respond to misleading media, workshops on how to address such issues within and beyond a classroom setting, and much more. The participants also took a Bulgarian folk dancing class, watched a fire walking show, and indulged in several delicious, traditional Bulgarian dinners. On the final morning of the conference, they had the option of taking a walking tour of Sofia, or making bread at the Sofia Bread House.

Some of our ETAs stayed in Sofia for several more days after the conference to continue exploring Sofia. ETA Natalie Davis, based in Timisoara, was invited to attend and assist a fellow Bulgarian ETA's English classes. Overall, our ETAs had a wonderful time and are excited about the newly formed friendships and future collaborations with the other Fulbrighters from the region.

A big "Thank you" to our colleagues from Fulbright Bulgaria for organizing the seminar!

Essay Writing Workshop Taught by Fulbright ETA James Wilson @FEAC

On November 14, during International Education Week, the EducationUSA-affiliated Fulbright Educational Advising Center hosted an essay writing workshop coordinated by Fulbright ETA James Wilson, who was joined by Dr. Kelly Wilson. James, a graduate of Southern Methodist University, shared very useful advice on approaching and refining the personal essay, highlighting the most effective essay writing strategies – illustrated through samples – and tips for keeping your reader engaged.
While discussion was encouraged throughout the workshop, at the end the in-center participants, as well as our Opportunity students joining us online from Craiova and Timişoara, had a chance to ask questions and get feedback on their essay drafts or on topics they proposed to approach in their essays.
