Free virtual fair connects Brazilians to universities in the USA

Virtual Fair EducationUSA Brazil discloses free opportunities 35 U.S. institutions over five days, with the possibility of scholarships


Brasilia, March 16, 2021: While following security protocols to contain the spread of Coronavirus, U.S. universities create actions to recruit foreign students interested in admissions to distance learning courses, or for future classes, in a face-to-face model. Until everything is normalized, the best idea is to invest the time planning all the steps to study abroad.

This is the bet of the first Virtual EducationUSA Brazil Fair, which gives free access to Brazilian students who dream of studying in the United States. From March 22 to 27, representatives of 35 U.S. institutions will be gathered, in a virtual environment, making presentations, clarifying doubts, disseminating scholarships and presenting proposals for undergraduate, graduate and intensive courses in English. Registration is open and can be done through the link:

Deborah Sena, an alumni at Babson College in Massachusetts, believes that the differential of educationusa fairs is contact with university culture. According to Deborah, the conversations help direct the academic career, according to interest and profile: “Representatives bring a lot of this in the way they communicate and how they share the main reasons for pride of that institution. In Babson, when I met the admissions team, I understood exactly what moved my college: Undertake. At that moment, I knew I was talking to the right institution,” recalls the Babson College student.

During the five days, officials from renowned U.S. universities and colleges will make presentations aimed at the interest of students who wish to study in the country. Questions like “Scholarships: How to Find the Best Financial Option For You? and “The importance of extracurricular activities during the pandemic” are part of the six themes available in the program. After the exhibitions, participants will have the chance to talk, in virtual rooms, with professionals to know details about processes and admission requirements, destinations, academic life, costs and financing options.

For Giovanni Rocha, a student at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, the event is an opportunity to learn more about the evaluation process and requirements of each: “There are more than 4,000 possibilities for institutions to study in the United States. The EducationUSA Fair helped me to know several colleges in all regions of the country. In addition, in a practical way, the participation of the Fair is important for you to play the “demonstrated interest”, which can help directly in the “application”, since you will have specific information from the director of admissions”, says Giovanni.

Among the confirmed participating universities are highlights: Manhattan College, Colorado State University, University of California San Diego, Savannah College of Art and Design, and several others. Babson College alumni risk a hint to event attendees: “Trading with other people is what makes the difference. This experience can give you new perspectives for essays called “essays”, which will put you in front of other candidates for your favorite universities,” says Sena.

The Virtual EducationUSA Brasil Fair is an initiative of the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Brazil, through The EducationUSA, the U.S. Department of State’s network for studies in the USA. Brazil has more than 16,000 Brazilians studying in the USA. This year, the expectation of the fair is to receive more than 5,000 entries, surpassing the number of the last face-to-face edition.
