The US Embassy, through its EducationUSA platform, on Friday (1 March) hosted a US University Fair at the EMK Center, which is seen as a unique opportunity for Bangladeshi students to speak with US university representatives about admission requirements and scholarship opportunities.  

Five US university representatives from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the University of Northern Iowa, the New York Institute of Technology, the University of Texas Arlington, and The Chicago School participated in the mini-fair from 3 pm to 6 pm.

All five U.S. college recruiters returned to Bangladesh due to the notable rising interest in the number of Bangladeshi students pursuing higher education in the United States.  

Students also received tips on submitting a dynamic and comprehensive application.  

Additionally, the program featured information sessions led by US Embassy officials and EducationUSA advisors on the F-1 student visa process.  

Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Nathan Flook welcomed the students and university representatives to the mini-fair.

EducationUSA, with a global network of more than 430 advising centers, is the only official U.S. government source for accurate, current, and comprehensive information about studying in the United States.

In Bangladesh, EducationUSA facilitates free access to information about study opportunities in the United States through advising centers in different parts of the country.
