Spring Fairs to Summer Programs
AIEF/KTF Dinner reception - Seoul
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!
