The United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF), in partnership with the Institute of International Education (IIE), New York will be hosting a U.S. University Fair in Kolkata on Sept 8 at Oberoi Grand Hotel, Ball Room.


Representatives from 26 American universities will participate in the fair and disseminate detailed information about their institutions and programs.

These universities offer a range of academic programs at undergraduate, graduate and doctorate levels.

USIEF-IIE Education USA Fair 2013 is an annual series which brings accredited American universities to India for a face-to-face interaction with Indian students, parents and high school faculty.

This is the first time that the USIEF-IIE Education USA Fair is being held in Kolkata.

Students will get an opportunity to get the most updated, relevant and authentic information about their programs of interest, standardized tests and financial aid under one roof from several American institutions coming from across the United States.

Informative panel discussions on various aspects of the admissions cycle will also be held during the education fair and a consular officer from the U.S. Consulate will familiarize students with the student visa process.

Entry to the fair will be free but registration is required.

According to Adam J. Grtosky, Executive Director, USIEF, "The main purpose of the USIEF-IIE-EducationUSA fair is to give dedicated students the opportunity to meet and interact with representatives of some of the most prominent and selective American universities."
