Argentine University Students Travel to the US for “English for Science” Program

A group of ten university students traveled to the United States on Friday, July 8 to participate in the program “English for Science,” a four-week intensive English immersion program at the University of Texas at Austin.  All participants are outstanding science students from different public universities.

Ambassador Noah Mamet met with the group at the Embassy.  During the meeting, the Ambassador and the students talked about the students’ expectations for the program and the benefits of academic exchanges between both countries.

The ten students participating in the program are: Jonathan Daniel Bandoni (San Luis); Rodolfo Gabriel Carrizo (Belén, Catamarca); Carlos Oviedo Codigoni and Ana Iris Robador (La Rioja); Lucas Ramón Madrazo Barbará (Salta); Rodrigo Morón (Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires Province); Valeria E. Alvarez (Chascomús, Buenos Aires Province); María Antonella Di Napoli (Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires Province); Luciana Fernanda Gordillo Olivares (San Juan), and Rebeca Ibarra (Santa Rosa, La Pampa).

The U.S. Embassy covers the costs of the program for students and encourages participants to apply for future academic opportunities in the United States, including those offered by the Fulbright Commission in Argentina.
