The Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission Meets with Students, Scholars and Researchers in Baia Mare

On April 4 and 5, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission, represented by Romanian Program Director Corina Danaila, visited Baia Mare to meet with students and scholars keen to find out more about the Fulbright Award programs and study opportunities in the US. The visit came in response to a kind invitation from the Faculty of Letters, North University Center in Baia Mare, Technical University of Cluj Napoca, for us to participate in the International Education Week – an event focused on study abroad programs and academic exchange opportunities, dedicated to local students, researchers and professors.

On April 4, two presentations aimed at different segments of the public took place at the Faculty of Letters. The first event focused on the Fulbright Student Award and independent applications to graduate programs in the U.S. The second presentation was dedicated to researchers and scholars eager to find out more about the Fulbright Senior Award and the specifics of this type of academic and cultural exchange in the U.S. Both events had as special guests U.S. Fulbright ETAs Anna Claspy and Damaris Bangean, who shared with the audience details about the U.S. higher education system, as well as their ongoing experience with the Fulbright Program in Romania. Damaris is currently affiliated with the University of Oradea, while Anna is teaching English classes at the Faculty of Letters in Baia Mare, this spring semester.
