Through a virtual program the US Embassy in Manila and EducationUSA, the US government’s official source of information on US higher education, will assist interested students in their applications.

Students will be given an opportunity to seek free guidance on their college applications and requirements during the program that will start at 7:15 p.m.

Education advisors, US university alumni, and other experts will provide real-time college advising on Zoom during the application drive. Parents and school administrators are also welcome to join.

Interested students, parents, and school administrators can register at https://educationusaph.org/AppDrive2021.

EducationUSA provides free advising services to prospective international students in more than 170 countries and offers students resources and tools to help navigate the five steps to US study– researching schools, identifying financial aid opportunities, completing applications, obtaining a student visa, and preparing for departure.

There are more than 4,700 accredited higher education institutions in the United States, and an EducationUSA adviser can help students narrow their options, define their priorities, and plan their college careers.

EducationUSA, however, does not offer scholarships but can assist students in identifying scholarship and financial assistance opportunities.
