EducationUSA Advising Center Podgorica, in cooperation with the Embassy of the United States of America in Podgorica, hosted a U.S. College Fair as part of the EducationUSA Southeastern Europe Recruiting Tour on April 7,2 017. Ambassador Margaret Ann Uyehara visited the event and encouraged Montenegrin students to find out about various opportunities and benefits of the U.S. higher education.
The fair, which gathered over 400 visitors, provided an opportunity for high school students, their parents and university students to learn more about colleges and universities in the United States. Representatives from eight U.S. universities provided information about their undergraduate and postgraduate programs and talked about the possibilities and advantages of studying in the United States. The EducationUSA Center Podgorica shared information about the services it offers on a regular basis to students who would like to study in the United States. The Consular Office shared information about student visas.
This U.S. College Fair is part of a wider collaborative project between the U.S. Embassy and the Education USA Network, supported by the Department of State. The goal of the project is to promote university study opportunities in the United States for international students.
This is the fourth Southeastern Europe Recruiting Tour which the EducationUSA Network has organized in the region, the second to include Montenegro. The tour also included similar events in Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
