Dear friends and colleagues,

Welcome to the second edition of the USIEF newsletter!

USIEF celebrated its 68th anniversary on February 2, 2018. It has been a remarkable journey so far. During this duration, the foundation administered close to 20,000 fellowships for U.S. and Indian citizens. The EducationUSA advisors advised hundreds of thousands of students and their families on pursuing higher education and scholarship in the United States.

In this edition of the newsletter, we have highlighted some of the journeys and accomplishments of our current Fulbrighters and alumni. We hope you enjoy reading this issue of the newsletter and will consider contributing to our next edition.

Best wishes,

Adam Grotsky
