FEAC-EducationUSA Team Join Community Day @”George Coşbuc” National Bilingual College

On Wednesday, January 29, the FEAC-EducationUSA team attended the Community Day at ”George Coşbuc” National Bilingual College, an event bringing together several not-for-profit organizations, volunteering associations, as well as the high school’s very own clubs, for the benefit of students interested in exploring further study opportunities and extracurricular activities.
We were happy to meet lower secondary students and high school students alike and tell them more about the U.S. higher education system, the application process and the ways in which FEAC-EducationUSA can help them prepare a strong application.
Many thanks to Florina Ruse, dedicated teacher and FEAC friend, for kindly inviting us to take part in the event!

He authored over 50 journal papers and chapters on topics such as modal logic, theories of truth, meaning, rationality, Wittgenstein’s thought, contemporary logic with a focus on Quine, Kripke, and Kit Fine, realism, essentialism and relativism.

Fulbright ETAs and FEAC Advisers Connect with High Schoolers and Students in Craiova

On December 16, the FEAC-EducationUSA advising team was present in Craiova for a series of outreach presentations, highlighting study and research opportunities in the United States via the Fulbright Awards, as well as independent study opportunities at an undergraduate or graduate level.
The first presentation of the day, kindly hosted and co-organized by the University of Craiova, was aimed at undergraduates and graduate students interested in study and research opportunities in the United States and focused on the Fulbright Student Award for Romanian citizens. Current U.S. Fulbright grantees Carson Parent and Allen Chen also took part in the event, sharing a bit of their personal experience as U.S. Fulbrighters to Romania, as well as useful tips to help guide potential applicants through the Fulbright application process and beyond.
Later that day, the FEAC advisers, accompanied by Fulbright ETA Allen Chen, met with high schoolers interested in studying in the U.S., at American Corner Craiova. The audience – mainly 11th graders – had a chance to learn more about the U.S. higher education system, as well as about the resources awaiting them at FEAC and the EducationUSA Opportunity Funds program.
Many thanks to Assistant Professor Sorin Cazacu, University of Craiova, and Ms. Mădălina Băileşteanu, American Corner Craiova coordinator, who kindly lent their support in organizing and promoting the events.
