FEAC at the Romanian International Fair in Iasi

At the RIUF in Iasi on March 20th, many high schoolers and university students interested in studying in the States patronized the Fulbright stand. 200 visitors came bustling through and inundated Corina Danaila, Director of the Romanian Program and Ioanida Costache, U.S. Fulbright grantee with inquiries. They were encouraged to take advantage of the resources offered by Education USA via the Fulbright Educational Advising Center. At the Fulbright Commission presentation students responded to Corina’s fill-in-the-blank questions and those who answered correctly received a coveted prize. The statistics provided the audience with an idea of the strong presence of international students in the United States. Here are Corina’s “Did You Know?” fun facts for your reading pleasure!

- There are over 820,000 international students in the USA.
- There are almost 1,500 Romanian students on U.S. campuses.
- There are around 500 students at undergraduate level in the U.S. and over 800 at graduate level.
- International students in the U.S. received around $8 billion in funding from their universities in the past academic year.

Romanian International University Fair in Bucharest

On March 15 and 16, FEAC took part in the most prominent educational fair in SE Europe, the Romanian Int’l University Fair/RIUF, in Bucharest.

Continuing a long tradition of strategic partnership with the Romanian Int’l University Fair, the Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission and its  EducationUSA Romania admissions services were again present at this year’s edition of the Fair. Information on Fulbright programs and advising on study in the U.S. in general were provided at the Fulbright booth and during a presentation on U.S. study opportunities for both undergrads and grads.  

During the fair we benefited from the support of three U.S. Fulbright grantees at our booth: also present were former and current FEAC interns as well as Fulbright staff, all on hand to promote U.S. education. The two-days event proved successful, with over 280 people stopping by, asking questions and learning more about all the free services the Advising Center offers in order to support them in the application process.  

On March 18 and 20, the Fulbright Commissions and its Advising Center will also be present at the RIUF events in Cluj and in Iasi.
