First ‘EducationUSA’ fair slated in Manila


The US Embassy Manila is pleased to announce an event catering to students interested in undergraduate and postgraduate study in the United States. EducationUSA, the US government’s official source on higher education, will be hosting its first higher education fair on February 16 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Philippine Sofitel Plaza.

EducationUSA will provide an opportunity for students, parents, and administrators to interact with representatives from a wide variety of US colleges and universities. The event will also feature programming focused on the US college application process, financial aid and scholarships, and securing a student visa. More than 20 colleges and universities are scheduled to attend.

EducationUSA provides free advising services to prospective international students in over 170 countries who want to study in the United States. EducationUSA helps students navigate the five steps to US study—research, financing, completing the application, obtaining a student visa, and preparing fordeparture—and offers resources and tools for each part of the process.

There are more than 4,500 accredited higher education institutions in the United States and an adviser can assist students as they narrow their options, define their priorities, and plan their college careers. The program does not offer scholarships, but can assist students in locating scholarship opportunities as they consider their options for funding a degree.

This free event is open to the public. Those who wish to attend the education fair can sign up ahead of time to ensure their spot. Register and find out more about EducationUSA resources and events by visiting
