Yesterday, the Philippine-American Educational Foundation (PAEF) hosted an information session in partnership with Kansas State University (KSU) and EducationUSA (EdUSA) Philippines.
It was the second time that KSU partnered with PAEF to conduct a seminar about Graduate Education and Research Opportunities. Led by Dr. Carol Shanklin, KSI Graduate School Dean, a team of five KSU officials and representatives shared to Filipino attendees what it was like to be part of the Wildcat community.
Dr. Shanklin also summarized what graduate schools in the US, particularly KSU, are looking for in an international student. She imparted a few tips on how to create a cohesive and competent application for graduate studies.
Christine Catinding, U.S. Embassy Cultural Affairs Specialist and EdUSA Adviser, discussed the resources and opportunities being offered by the U.S. State Department to Filipinos who are interested in studying in the United States. Meanwhile, PAEF Junior Program Officer Leanne Malicdem talked briefly about the Fulbright program and the several scholarships being administered by the Fulbright Commission in the Philippines. Attendees were able to ask questions at the end of the plenary session.
The program was closed with a message delivered by KSU and Fulbright Philippine Agriculture Scholarship Program (FPASP) alumnus Dr. Mario Andrada.
