Kuching, the largest city on the Island of Borneo and Malaysia’s 4th largest city, was the site of a 3-day Education Fair, sponsored by the Borneo Post, which ran from March 26th to 28th.  The EducationUSA booth and presentations drew some of the largest crowds at the Fair.  About 300 students, their parents, and school counselors visited the EducationUSA booth seeking  out valuable information on American academic programs as well as  scholarships, exchanges and grants.  In addition, over 100 people attended a presentation on student visas by an Embassy Consular officer and a presentation on Study in the U.S.A offered by Dr. James Coffman, Executive Director of the Malaysian-American Commission for Educational Exchange (MACEE).  Dr. Coffman provided details about the many programs through which over 6,000 Malaysian students are studying in the U.S.  For more information on EducationUSA in Malaysia, please logon to
