Thank you EducationUSA, U.S. Commercial Services, and to the institutions that made this years mission a huge success. Here are some photos we took during our high school visits! Until next time Colombia - it was a treat!
The Study Texas Board is excited to announce the next Study Texas Mission Trip to Bogota, Colombia. We had previously discussed visiting Vietnam this fall, and due to changes with the Study Texas Board, we were unable to plan the trip for this fall. The Study Texas Mission Trip to Vietnam has been pushed to the spring, tentatively scheduled for February 2017.
As we have visited Colombia previously, we were able to plan a mission trip for this fall. EducationUSA Colombia is coordinating the mission for Study Texas, with the help of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Greeting from U.S. Commercial Service Jakarta.
CS Jakarta supported EducationUSA Indonesia for their upcoming U.S. Graduate School Fair 2016.
The fairs will be held on September 14, 2016 in Malang-East Java and September 15, 2016 in Jakarta (Capital city of Indonesia).
Last September 2015, EducationUSA Indonesia hosted its successful Graduate Fair in Yogyakarta-Central Java and Jakarta with more than 2,500 prospective students met with admissions and alumni representatives of twenty-five U.S. universities.
They are expecting there will be more U.S. university representatives and also Indonesian people coming to this year fair, as the number of scholarship opportunity in Indonesia is also increasing, like LPDP, USAID Prestasi, Fulbright, DIKTI, etc.

This November, Study Texas will take a statewide education mission to Mexico. Chair-Elect Dickie Hargrove will lead the mission with support from the U.S. Department of Commerce and EducationUSA. The mission will visit Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey to meet with local students and school advisors. Join the mission to showcase your school, make contact with prospective students and high school counselors, and make connections with other international education professionals.
Study Texas hosted the 2nd NAFSA Annual Conference Study Texas Breakfast for EducationUSA advisors, State Department officials, and Study Texas members on May 28, 2014, at Richard Walker’s Pancake House during the 2014 NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo, held in San Diego, California. This event provided the 38 EducationUSA advisors, USDOC education specialists, and REACS who attended the conference an opportunity to meet 22 members of Study Texas. Study Texas Chair, Anis Qourzal, gave a brief presentation to guests about Study Texas and why Texas is an ideal destination for international students who wish to study in the US. Members of Study Texas had the opportunity to meet and mingle with attendees to share information about Study Texas, the State of Texas, and their respective institutions.
