Students in Qatar who are interested in obtaining a scholarship to further their education in the US have the opportunity to meet representatives from several American universities and colleges during a fair taking place in Doha on September 30, 2014. The American Education Expo Scholarship Fair will take place at the St. Regis Hotel at the Al Gassar Resort in Doha. Entrance is free.

The participating universities, some of which will be offering full tuition scholarships, include; Murray State University, Rider University, Pace University, SUNY Institute of Technology, Concordia University Wisconsin, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Pennsylvania State University, Drexel University, National University, Adelphi University, Saint Joseph's University, University of The Potomac and Drury University.

Representatives from these American colleges and universities will be on hand to discuss undergraduate and graduate admissions and scholarship opportunities with students and their guardians. Prospective students should bring multiple copies of their report cards, transcripts, and TOEFL scores to enable representatives to determine admission and scholarship eligibility.

“The American Education Expo is a free chance for potential future students and parents to meet face to face with representatives from top US universities. This is a great opportunity for students in Qatar to be rewarded for their achievements and hard work in high school,” said Silvia Martinez Lowden, Program Coordinator at International Student Network, the organizers of the Fair.

The American Education Expo is supported by the US Department of Commerce at the US Embassy in Doha. Staff from the Embassy will also be present at the Expo to answer any questions the students and parents may have in regards to the student visa process and application.
