The Student Ambassador Program
We would like university students in Turkey to reach accurate and comprehensive information about the Fulbright grant programs and higher education options in the U.S.A. That’s why; we started a new program called “The Student Ambassador Program” to provide information to those who are interested in studying in the U.S.A.
The Student Ambassadors work voluntarily, and organize meetings and give seminars to the students in their cities about the application process to U.S. universities and the Fulbright Grant Programs.
