Studying in the U.S.

DPAO Izaak Martin from the U.S.Embassy and Darinka Trček from the EducationUSA at the Second Gymnasium in Maribor

To celebrate International Education Week, Deputy Public Affairs Officer Izaak Martin and Darinka Trček from the EducationUSA at the Public Scholarship, Development, Disability and Maintenance Fund of the Republic of Slovenia visited two groups of students at the Second Gymnasium in Maribor (II. Gimnazija Maribor). The first group of students were focused on specific details of studying in the USA (selecting schools, getting scholarships, filling out the application forms) and the second group was more interested in general outline of the US Educational system.

Darinka Trček from EducationUSA also visited a Technical High School in Koper, together with Embassy intern Alia Flaningan, a student of international relations and French at Manhattan College. After introducing study in the U.S., scholarships, tests, and the EducationUSA information center in Ljubljana to about 90 students, they then fielded students’ questions. The students were very much interested in studying in the U.S. and their numerous questions continued even after the visit in the classroom.
