EducationUSA Opportunity Fair: A. Program Description: The Embassy solicits proposals to conduct an EducationUSA Opportunity Fair for Jordanian students interested in pursuing higher education in the United States (pending funding availability). While in 2015 the overall number of Jordanians attending U.S. universities increased by 3.1%, the number of graduate students dropped by 3.9%. Therefore, this event will promote both graduate and undergraduate education opportunities and connect Jordanian students and universities to U.S. universities and their representatives. As part of the EducationUSA Fair, U.S. university representatives will travel to various Jordanian governorates and meet with students who are interested in studying in the United States. The representatives will also offer workshops about the college application process and other relevant issues such as writing a personal statement and soliciting recommendation letters. This project will include the following: • Awardee will invite 50 U.S. university representatives to Jordan and host an EducationUSA Opportunity Fair in at least 3 different governorates to highlight academic opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in the United States. As part of this fair, Awardee will set up meeting rooms and all required logistics for the workshops and presentations. • Awardee will setup meetings for the 50 visiting U.S. university representatives with the Ministry of Higher Education, as well as with presidents or representatives from Jordanian universities who offer scholarships for their students to pursue higher education abroad. B. Federal Award Information Funding Instrument Type: Grant Award Amount: Estimated funding available for this project is ($100,000).
