College Fair in Ramallah

The U.S. Commercial Service in Jerusalem organized its annual College Fair that took place on April 3, 2013 in the city of Ramallah, West Bank.

Twenty U.S. colleges and universities were represented at the fair which had a turnout of around 250 students. It is a first for such a large turnout of American universities in the Palestinian Authority.  The U.S. Commercial Service in the West Bank was very proud to have played such an instrumental role in the success of this event.

The event was a collaborative effort between the U.S. Commercial Service in Jerusalem, the Public Diplomacy and Consular sections at the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem and AMIDEAST, the American educational NGO in Ramallah. Welcoming remarks were given by Commercial Counselor Maria Andrews and Public Diplomacy Officer Rachel Leslie, and Consular Officer Michael Bonfield was on hand to answer questions about the visa application process. College representatives were impressed by the caliber of Palestinian students that visited the fair. 

Commercial Specialist Issa Noursi was the lead on organizing this year’s successful fair.
