International Education Week

The Fulbright Greece EducationUSA Advising Center participated in the International Education Week (IEW) 2022, which took place from November 14-18. IEW is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education with partners worldwide is part of their efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, conduct research in the U.S., and exchange experiences.

Partners include individuals and institutions such as schools, colleges and universities, embassies, international organizations, businesses, associations, and community organizations.
