Today, Ambassador Noah Mamet received a group of U.S. Studies Seminar exchange program alumni in his residence.  Organized by the Fulbright Commission since 2006, the U.S. Studies program is designed for recent university graduates with majors in Political Science, International Relations, Law, Journalism and History, among others.

Program participants attend a one-week seminar on U.S. politics and history led by two U.S. professors.  Following the seminar, a smaller group is selected to continue with the program at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.  During their meeting, the Ambassador congratulated this year’s participants on being selected for the program and talked about the importance of increasing connectivity between the United States and Argentina, specifically in educational exchanges.  Former program participants also shared their experiences with the group that will travel to Amherst this year.  The U.S. Counselor for Public Affairs Thomas Mesa and the Director of the Fulbright Commission in Argentina Norma González also participated in the event.
