BeSt Fair 2017

Four Fulbright Austria staff members spent four days advising thousands of students about opportunities to study in the USA with Fulbright and EducationUSA at the 2017 BeSt³ - Die Messe für Beruf, Studium und Weiterbildung. For the first time, we collaborated with the BeSt on the "BeSt International Spezial," a new section of the fair that brought five US universities to Austria. The universities present were:

  • California State University, Fullerton,
  • John Cabot University
  • Norwich University
  • SCAD - The University for Creative Careers
  • University of California, Irvine

We also held a special workshop on writing personal statements and more for US university applications, a talk on The Fulbright Program and other scholarship opportunities, and a talk introducing the US universities at the fair. Our presence at the fair was supported by a special grant from the US Embassy Vienna, and Acting Ambassador Eugene Young opened the inaugural BeSt International Spezial with Fulbright Austria Executive Director Lonnie Johnson.
