US EMBASSY TO CONDUCT COLLEGE APPLICATION DRIVE FOR SHS STUDENTS
SENIOR high school students interested in pursuing higher education in the United States were encouraged to attend the annual application drive of the US Embassy in the Philippines and EducationUSA.
Through the virtual program on Friday, October 29, the US Embassy and EducationUSA will assist students in their application.
“Students interested in studying in the United States will have an opportunity to seek free guidance on their college applications and requirements,” the US Embassy said in a statement.
“Education advisors, US university alumni, and other experts will provide real-time college advising on Zoom during the application drive. Parents and school administrators are also welcome to join,” it added.
Students, parents, and school administrators can register at https://educationusaph.org/AppDrive2021.
EducationUSA provides free advising services to prospective international students in more than 170 countries and offers students resources and tools to help navigate the five steps to US study – researching schools, identifying financial aid opportunities, completing applications, obtaining a student visa, and preparing for departure.
There are more than 4,700 accredited higher education institutions in the US, and an EducationUSA adviser can help students narrow their options, define their priorities, and plan their college careers.
EducationUSA, however, does not offer scholarships but assists students in identifying scholarship and financial assistance opportunities.
