On November 13, 2013, the U.S. Embassy in Brazzaville talked with more than 250 people about opportunities to study in the United States. Underneath tents outside and in a packed auditorium at the newly built library at Marien Ngouabi University, American officers shared the importance of higher education, explained the U.S. educational system, answered questions about how to apply for a student visa, and promoted English learning and exchange program opportunities like the Fulbright, Humphrey, and YALI fellowships. Ambassador Stephanie Sullivan greeted young Congolese eager hear about studying in the United States and DCM E. Strother Murray delivered a speech encouraging students to continue working toward a bright future in the face of many obstacles. To date, there are more Congolese who are studying in the United States than ever before. English club leaders, exchange program alumni, and many American officers volunteered throughout the day to distribute handouts with information about learning opportunities in Congo and to share their personal stories about studying in the United States. Papeterie Centrale displayed and sold Nouveaux Horizons books, and supported the U.S. Embassy’s longstanding dedication to education and learning.
