On June 13, the Romanian - U.S. Fulbright Commission hosted its Pre-departure Orientation Seminar dedicated to the Romanian Fulbright grantees and independent students leaving for the U.S. to study or conduct research in the academic year 2017-2018.

The event began in the morning with a series of welcome speeches by distinguished guest speakers representing the U.S. Embassy in Romania, the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Fulbright Board of Directors and the Romanian academia, who shared their thoughts on the Fulbright program and congratulated the grantees.
 
Throughout the day the Romanian Alumni together with several U.S. Grantees participated in panel discussions, offering practical information to the current grantees and independent students preparing to start their U.S.  experience. The Romanian Fulbright  alumni also shared personal impressions about their grant in the US, as well as about their return to Romania and re-adjustment. Specific details and advice on J&F visas were provided by Vice Consul Lindsey Whitehead, Consular Section, U.S. Embassy Bucharest, who joined us for a presentation and kindly answered questions from the addressees.

Students from Liberty University Visit Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission

On Wednesday, June 7, a group of ten U.S. students from Liberty University- Lynchburg, Virginia, coordinated by Fulbright Scholar Alumnus Professor Michael Jones and his wife Laura Jones, paid us a visit in order to learn about study and research opportunities in Romania and the types of educational exchanges which the Fulbright Program facilitates.
 
The students, currently in Romania as part of the international internship program their university offers, will major in different fields, ranging from Film Studies, Philosophy/Religious Studies and Business to Nursing and English Teaching as a Foreign Language.  During the meeting held at the Fulbright Educational Advising Center, the students asked questions about study opportunities in Romanian universities and were interested in finding  out more about the eligibility requirements for a Fulbright award. They also shared impressions about their recent experience of Romania and the cultural diversity and differences they encountered. Professor Jones remembered his first interaction with the Romanian people and culture, also pointing out a few circumstances he considered significant for his experience as a Fulbrighter in Romania.

The event has proved once more that not only does the Fulbright Program generate life-changing academic and personal experiences but it also builds long-term connections, being an excellent way for every international student and scholar to make the most of the benefits of cultural and academic exchanges.  

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

On June 6, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC)-EducationUSA concluded this year’s spring edition of the International Study Day (ISD) tour, alongside the British Council, Campus France and DAAD, with two presentations in Brăila, at “Nicolae Bălcescu” National College and “Gheorghe Munteanu Murgoci” National College.
A total 150 students from both schools – ranging from 9th to 11th graders - attended the two presentations. The FEAC-EducationUSA adviser provided them with an overview of the American higher education system, the application process and forms of financial aid, also highlighting graduate study opportunities, via the Fulbright Student Award or independently. We also encouraged them to keep in touch with the FEAC-EducationUSA advising team, and plan carefully every step of the application process.
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.
