EducationUSA Opportunity Fair

Funding Agency:
Department of State

 

 The Embassy solicits proposals to conduct an EducationUSA Opportunity Fair for Jordanian students interested in pursuing higher education in the United States (pending funding availability). While in 2015 the overall number of Jordanians attending U.S. universities increased by 3.1%, the number of graduate students dropped by 3.9%. Therefore, this event will promote both graduate and undergraduate education opportunities and connect Jordanian students and universities to U.S. universities and their representatives. As part of the EducationUSA Fair, U.S. university representatives will travel to various Jordanian governorates and meet with students who are interested in studying in the United States. The representatives will also offer workshops about the college application process and other relevant issues such as writing a personal statement and soliciting recommendation letters. 

Deadline: Sep. 6, 2016
