A group of U.S. universities participated in the Scholarship Education Fair that took place March 29th, organized by the International Student Network (ISN). ISN is a company that introduces U.S. universities to students from Latin America by organizing education fairs. Many of these universities would like to increase their international student enrollment and they offer scholarships and financial assistance that are open to Panamanian students.
The U.S. Embassy, through the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service, assists in the promotion of these events like the Scholarship Education Fair 2012 that took place on March 29th at the Courtyard Marriott. Many of the universities represented at the fair offered varying amounts of scholarship or tuition discounts to their individual universities. Those partial, private scholarships are different from the scholarships and exchange programs that the U.S. Government offers to Panamanians.
