U.S. Department of State’s Overseas Schools Project

Last month, the U.S. Department of State’s Overseas Schools Project, in partnership with the College Board, offered sessions to our community, with information being shared by American higher education admissions and enrollment leaders. There were over 200 participants from the region at the Overseas School Project College Admissions Leaders Roundtable. Parents and students had an opportunity to visit with our OSP Liaison, Shawn Abbott, who is the Assistant Vice Provost for Admissions, Financial Aid, & Enrollment Management at Temple University. He offered a timely, candid, and calming discussion about how U.S. universities are applying extraordinary flexibility within their reading of applications during COVID.
