EducationUSA will host the “U.S. University Virtual Fair 2020” for students and parents to engage directly with U.S. university representatives and EducationUSA advisers, all from the safety and comfort of their home, from October 2-10, 2020.
Speaking on the significance of U.S. higher education, David Kennedy, Minister Counselor for Public Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi noted, “An education in the United States is important because it prepares you for your future. Not only is it the best education, but it connects you to a world of opportunities after your studies. We encourage Indian students to study in the United States not just because it is a great education, but also because they join a diverse community that enriches our classrooms, research, and campus life.”
This U.S. University Virtual Fair is a unique opportunity for Indian students to engage with university representatives and EducationUSA advisers to better understand the wide spectrum of educational opportunities available in the United States. The United States has over 4500 accredited higher education institutions. This virtual fair will bring together more than 150 of these accredited U.S. universities and colleges representing a range of academic programs, regions, campus sizes, as well as different undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees.
Participating in the fair will help students and parents gather valuable information about academic programs, campus life, financial aid options, scholarship possibilities, application procedures, and safety precautions at U.S. universities in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. This year, EducationUSA is offering the fair as a virtual experience in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of attendees and participating university representatives.
Noting the significance of the work done by EducationUSA in India, Adam Grotsky, Director of the United States-India Educational Foundation said, “EducationUSA is an incredible resource for Indian students and their families. It’s the one place where they are guaranteed to get accurate, authentic, and unbiased information on studying in the United States. This EducationUSA Virtual Fair will provide students a wealth of information on a wide variety of US universities and degree programs. It’s a great place to start the journey to studying in the United States.”
