Fourth Annual U.S. Higher Education Fair

The Embassy Public Affairs Section organized the fourth annual U.S. higher education fair Wednesday, October 25th.  This is the only university fair of its kind in La Paz and a great way for Bolivian students to learn more about higher education in the U.S.  It was a fun event as well for all dedicated alumni.  This year, over 30 U.S. universities and colleges were represented by Embassy and ACS volunteers. The fair provided information about undergraduate and graduate opportunities, and the EducationUSA representative in La Paz offered presentations on the general admissions and financial aid process, as well as presentations by a representative from the Consular Affairs section of Embassy La Paz about the student visa application process.  Approximately 215 students and their parents from all parts of La Paz and El Alto participated in the event.
