USIEF-EducationUSA University Fair 2016

The United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF), in partnership with American Councils, is organizing a U.S. University Fair on Sunday, October 2, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lalit Hotel, New Delhi.  Representatives from 33 U.S. Universities will participate in the fair and provide information about their institutions and programs.  The participating universities represent a wide geographical area in the U.S. and offer a range of academic programs at undergraduate and graduate levels.  Adam Grotsky, Executive Director, United States-India Educational Foundation said, “The main purpose of the USIEF – EducationUSA University fairs is to give dedicated students the opportunity to meet and interact with representatives of some of the most prominent and selective American universities.”

At the fair, students and their parents can get information directly from the U.S. universities about the various programs and admissions criteria.  The discussion sessions at the fair will help students make informed choices about U.S. higher education and about the U.S. student visa application process.  Students can also collect materials and brochures from the university representatives.

Admission to the fair is free. A list of participating universities and a schedule of events is enclosed.
