Program Highlights

Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission at RIUF 2014 Fall Edition

The Romanian-U.S. Fulbright Commission was present, once again, at the fall edition of the Romanian International University Fair (RIUF), in Bucharest, Timişoara and Iaşi. We took advantage of this opportunity to spread the news about Fulbright grants for Romanian citizens and the services offered by the Fulbright Educational Advising Center/FEAC, thus reaching out to a wider pool of potential applicants. An average 800 visitors stopped by our booth during the two days of the fair in Bucharest and over 500 in Timişoara and Iaşi, eager to learn more about the undergraduate and graduate application process and financial aid opportunities in the United States.

We also delivered a seminar in each of the three cities (on October 2 in Bucharest, October 7 in Timişoara and October 9 in Iaşi), titled “Studii în S.U.A. – prin bursele Fulbright sau cu susţinerea financiară a universităţilor americane”, presenting Fulbright grants, eligibility criteria and the application process, as well as the path to applying for direct financial aid granted by U.S. universities. We had a full house for each seminar and several of the audience voiced a definite interest in applying for a grant. In Bucharest we were also graced with the presence of a special guest, Ms. Soribel Feliz, vice-consul of the American Embassy in Bucharest, who kindly accepted to take part in our seminar and speak about student visas, ending the presentation with a Q&A session.

Stanford, Brown, Wellesley and Penn Come to Bucharest

The Fulbright Educational Advising Center kicked off October with a visit from representatives of Stanford University, Brown University, University of Pennsylvania and Wellesley College. Ms. Kiyoe Hashimoto (Stanford University), Mr. James Kytta (Brown University), Ms. Milena Mareva (Wellesley College) and Ms. Maxine Mendoza (University of Pennsylvania) kindly accepted to give presentations in some of the finest high schools in Bucharest, as well as at the American Corner.

On October 1, we accompanied them to „Tudor Vianu” High School and „Mihai Viteazul” High School, where about 100 and, respectively, 400 high school students gathered to hear the presentations, eager to learn more about opportunities to study in the U.S. Our guests highlighted their institutions’ rich undegraduate academic offerings and inspiring communities, also providing insider’s tips on undergraduate admission and financial aid. On October 2, they delivered a presentation before 60 students from ICHB High School.

Our guests also joined us for a presentation and Q&A session at the American Corner Bucharest, sharing comprehensive information on the admission process. A total 50 participants attended the event at American Corner, both on-site and via DVC from Cluj and Craiova.

Yale Representative & FEAC Team Visit Sf. Sava High School

The Fulbright Educational Advising Center/FEAC had yet another distinguished guest this month. On October 13, we accompanied Mr. Keith Light, Yale University Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions, to Bucharest’s „Sf. Sava” High School for a presentation on opportunities to study at Yale and other Ivy League schools.
In his lively presentation, Mr. Light shared stories about life at Yale with the 60+ high school students present, highlighing the tremendous resources that Yale and Ivy League schools in general can offer, as well as the nurturing community and strong support network at Yale. He also spoke about financial aid opportunities and shared insider’s tips on the admission process. The FEAC team encouraged those with an interest in U.S. study opportunities to contact us at our center and to take advantage of the information and preparation materials availabled in our library and resource center.

FEAC Participates in SRT Fair for Undergraduate Studies - Fall Edition

On Wednesday, October 8th, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center staff interacted with the high school students and teachers all over Bucharest at the international education fair organized by Student Recruitment Tours (STR). Resuming the collaboration started last year, FEAC and SRT partnered up for this fair held at the Marshal Garden Hotel, Bucharest.

The students who visited FEAC stand asked questions about U.S. study options, focusing on financial aid opportunities and the benefits of the US undergraduate education. The majority of young scholars were eager to learn more about the admission process, taking the standardized tests required by the US universities and scholarship prospects.

It was also a good occasion for our staff to inform the visitors about the on-site and online services and resources offered by the FEAC/Education USA center.

George Washington University Representative Visits Bucharest

On Wednesday, October 22nd, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center/FEAC team facilitated three visits made by Ms. Britanny Wright, George Washington (GW) University representative, to the Polytechnic University and the School of Administration and Business within the University of Bucharest.
