We are excited to announce that UMass Amherst has been selected as a host institution for the Friends of Fulbright Argentina Exchange Program, to take place January - February, 2018. Sponsored by the Fulbright Commission and the U.S. Embassy in Argentina, the partnership aims to fulfill former President Obama’s 100,000 Strong in the Americas initiative by providing academic and cultural programming designed to enhance the understanding of higher education at the graduate and undergraduate levels in the United States, with the goal of welcoming more Argentinian students to the U.S. for graduate studies.
New this summer was our pre-college program for young entrepreneurs -- fittingly called Entrepreneurship Everywhere -- as students from as far away as Colombia and China, as well as California, gained new entrepreneurial skills and experiences to put to use literally across the world! Students worked in teams to develop innovative solutions to real-world problems and worked toward launching their ideas for products, businesses, nonprofits and organizations.
