Information for U.S. College and University Representatives
The Fulbright Foundation in Greece is pleased to announce the Virtual U.S. University Fair, Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm, Athens local time (UTC+3 EEST).
The U.S. University Fair is well established as Greece's top event for students, parents, teachers, and counselors to learn about educational opportunities available in the United States at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Each year the Fair attracts hundreds of visitors rendering it a highly visible and successful event.
You are invited to join us in Athens so that your institution is among those that Greek students consider for their studies. Greece ranks among the top countries in the world from which students go abroad to pursue higher education degrees and provides an applicant pool that many U.S. institutions highly value.
We welcome representation of U.S. higher education institutions at either the undergraduate or graduate levels, or both.
