Driving change through education
Alumni of U.S. programs
The U.S. Embassy in Zagreb has been supporting educational exchange between Croatia and the United States by awarding scholarships for study at U.S. universities through several programs, including Fulbright and the Ron Brown Fellowship (the latter of which is no longer available). U.S. universities themselves have been the key source of financial aid and scholarships for all international students.
According to Open Doors 2009, the annual report on international academic mobility published by the Institute of International Education (IIE), the number of Croatian students enrolled in U.S. institutions of higher education ranged between approximately 600 and 800 in the period from 2001 to 2010. U.S. institutions of higher education offer unparalleled learning environments in no small part due to the high percentage of international students and faculty. As such, they connect individuals from around the world who strive to make a difference in their field.
