AIEF is a non-profit organization that brings together the world's finest students with the U.S. educational system. Since 1992, AIEF has worked with educators, school representatives, business leaders, and government officials worldwide on a range of international student services and educational exchange programs.
The Spring AIEF fairs have come and gone with success. Our
affiliate team in Taipei
held the first event on March 19th and 20th. About 20 US schools were represented and about 900
Taiwanese students attended the event looking to take their studies to the US. The
following week the AIEF fairs in Korea kicked off in Busan on March
24th. Finally the fairs culminated at the large event in Seoul on March 26th
and 27th. 38 US
institutions were represented at the Seoul
fair along with the U.S. Embassy and Fulbright Commission. US and AIEF
representatives were treated to a swanky all you can eat/drink meal at the COEX
by Mr. Lee and our organizing partners Korea Trade Fairs (KTF). It was much
enjoyed to say the least. And as always the AIEF fairs were a great time.
AIEF Summer Short Term Program - Stanford
the Spring 2016 fairs in the rear view mirror its time for AIEF to look towards
the busy summer programs. We are kicking things off by ramping up efforts to
bolster our short term programs. These programs offer students from all over
the world the opportunity to experience the American education system while
also having the opportunity to experience some of the sites and sounds of California. Our first
group arrives next month!
the short term programs we have our annual HOBY WLC event coming up in July.
This is always a big hit. AIEF will be hosting a number of students from China and Taiwan. The students will spend a
week on the CSU Fullerton campus. The HOBY delegates will have a jam packed
schedule including a number of guest speakers, leadership building activities,
and visits to local tourist destinations.
of year is busy season for the AIEF staff, and we can all say we are looking
forward to the fun ahead!
The Spring Edition of UScampus Guide is now live! This was
my first season taking over for the magazine and I am so pleased that it has
finally come to fruition. We have made so many upgrades to the magazine
interface and are so proud of the improved look of USCG. Away with the outdated,
non user friendly PDF version, and in with the new, modern, and very user
friendly design. The pages are now flippable, and links are now clickable.
This season’s USCG features 15 new articles that discuss finance,
living in the U.S.,
studying tips, career, and visa advice. The magazine spotlights writers such as
Jessica Peyton Roberts of Aim High Writing College Consulting and Anum Yoon of Current on Currency. USCG also introduces our readers to Go Overseas, an excellent
resource for finding study, intern, and volunteer abroad programs, along with
ratings, reviews, and resources. We also couldn’t wait to share with our
students the services of Flywire by peertransfer, an incredibly effective way to
make international payments.
In February, AIEF launched its biannual USCG cover photo
contest. Schools from across the nation sent in their submissions in hopes of
winning a featured section in the magazine and their photo on the cover. This
season’s theme was “Favorite Class in Action” and Peralta Community College
District won with the most votes! Shout out to Mr. Drew Gephart for his impressive
social media outreach! Schools that didn’t win will have a chance to enter
again in the Fall or future editions.
This issue has so many amazing resources for all of our
readers that we are so excited to share with you all on our new and improved
online magazine! Go check it out now!
