Program Highlights

Romanian International University Fair in Bucharest

On March 15 and 16, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (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.

The Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC) Visits Cluj

FEAC at Babes-Bolyai University

In March the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC) carried out two events in Cluj designed for students at the graduate and undergraduate level. The first presentation took place at the Center for International Cooperation at Babes-Bolyai University and targeted students interested in graduate study opportunities. The participants received information about Education USA’s services and resources and about the opportunity to apply for a Fulbright Student Award for masters and research programs in the U.S. Special guest, Joe Dobson, Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Babes-Bolyai University, greeted the students with a comparison between the Romanian and American education systems.

FEAC at American Corner in Cluj

The second event, held at the American Corner Cluj-Napoca at the Country Library, was aimed at high school students interested in completing their Bachelor’s degree in the United States. Ioanida Costache, Fulbright Research Grantee, helped answer questions about the application process to undergraduate colleges and universities and offered the students a first-hand account of the liberal arts education experience.

FEAC at the Romanian International University Fair in Cluj

In addition to these presentations, the high schoolers, undergraduates and graduated students from Cluj had the chance to visit us at the Fulbright booth at the Romanian International University Fair, which took place at Casa Studentilor on March 18th. Corina Danaila, Romanian program director at the Fulbright Commission, gave a third presentation concerning both undergrad and graduate studies in the U.S. to a packed room of eager students.

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 booth. 200 visitors came bustling through and inundated Corina Danaila, Romanian Program Director and Ioanida Costache, U.S. Fulbright grantee with inquiries. They were encouraged to take advantage of the resources offered by EducationUSA via the Fulbright Educational Advising Center. The Fulbright presentation held during the fair offered more details on U.S. study opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students.

International University Fair for Undergraduate Studies

On Thursday, March 13th, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC) conversed with over 200 high school students at an international education fair in Bucharest, organized by Student Recruitment Tours (STR). Continuing our collaboration started last year, FEAC and SRT partnered up again for this fair held at the Marshal Garden Hotel and interacted with students from high schools all over Bucharest.

During the fair, students from over 5 high schools in Bucharest asked questions about U.S. study, with particular focus on financial aid opportunities and the benefits of the Liberal Arts System. Discussions about the very broad topic of tertiary education in the USA led to questions about everything from the SATs to sororities; from English proficiency exams to the value of volunteerism in high school. The majority of young scholars inquired about the admissions process and scholarship opportunities.

Over 250 high schoolers interested in continuing their education in the U.S. got connected with FEAC and EducationUSA and learned more about how our center can help them during their application, our services and resources and about the study opportunities at U.S. universities.


Graduate School Prospects Pack the American Corner for Insights on US Study

On March 7, the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC) gave a presentation regarding graduate school admissions and Fulbright Scholarship opportunities to a packed room at the American Corner at the National Library in Bucharest.
Thirty-seven would-be expat scholars got tips on how to attract financial aid and navigate the application process. Guests at the event included current American Fulbright grantee Anna Sherod as well as Romanian Fulbright alumni Ioana Moldovan (the National University of Theatrical Arts and Cinematography) and Marius Profiroiu (Bucharest University of Economic Studies). They encouraged applicants to apply, citing their personal positive experiences with cross-cultural education. The diversity and quality of US education were illustrated in Dr. Moldovan and Dr. Profiroiu’s answers to the many audience questions. Participants were urged to visit FEAC for more resources, to participate in seminars, or for individualized advice.
