Bridgetown -- The U.S. Embassy to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean, and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States is pleased to announce the opening of its EducationUSA advising center at the T.A. Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) in Grenada. The center will enable more Grenadian students to pursue their dreams of studying in the United States, and the knowledge and skills with which they return will allow them to contribute to Grenada's growth and development.
The EducationUSA center at TAMCC will be headed by Mrs. Kirl Alexander-John, who will join EducationUSA' s global network of advisers working in over 400 advising centers throughout 170 countries. She will guide local students through EducationUSA' s "5 Steps to U.S. Study" process by assisting them in researching schools, exploring financial aid opportunities, completing applications, applying for student visas, and preparing for departure.
U.S. Ambassador to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean, and the OECS Linda Taglialatela helped open the new center during a ceremony at TAMCC on February 8. "We are extremely pleased to re-open the EducationUSA advising center at the T.A. Marryshow Community College," Ambassador Taglialatela said.
