Manila, September 5, 2019 — In celebration of National Literacy Month, EducationUSA will conduct a roadshow in Cordillera from September 11 to 14 to engage Filipinos interested in studying in the United States and raise counselors’ awareness about the importance of digital literacy for the largely digital U.S. college admissions process.
EducationUSA advisors will visit high schools and colleges to conduct information sessions, essay workshops, and one-on-one advising, and spread the word about EducationUSA’s free services to teach U.S. college application literacy to aspiring international students.
On September 14, EducationUSA will hold its first guidance counselor conference in Cordillera at the Le Monet Hotel in Baguio to provide in-depth training to counselors and school administrators interested in learning about student study abroad opportunities and refining their skills in college admissions counseling.
EducationUSA provides free advising services to prospective international students in more than 170 countries, and offers student resources and tools to navigate the Five Steps to U.S. Study: researching schools, identifying financing, completing the application, obtaining a student visa, and preparing for departure. There are more than 4,500 accredited higher education institutions in the United States, and an EducationUSA adviser can help students define their priorities so they can narrow their options and plan their college careers. EducationUSA does not offer scholarships, but can assist students in identifying scholarship and financial assistance opportunities.
