Consulate ‘Study With US’ Features Nadir Wade

December 8, 2022 | 0 Comments

The U.S. Consulate General has launched the next Study With ‘US’ campaign video, spotlighting Bermudian students currently attending U.S. colleges and universities, as well as Bermudian alumni of U.S institutions, with the second video featuring Nadir Wade.

A spokesperson said, “The campaign reinforces the longstanding educational exchange ties between the United States and Bermuda and highlights accessible and affordable pathways to study in the United States.

“In the second video launched today on Facebook [@USConsulateHamilton], Nadir Wade sheds light on his experience attending Howard University in Washington D.C. – one of the top Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States.

“Wade, Managing Director at the Bermuda Electric Light Company Limited, was a student athlete on the soccer team who earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in electrical engineering and power systems engineering. For top students like Wade a U.S. degree can be the most affordable option.

“Wade earned a partial athletic scholarship from Howard University and a Bermuda Government scholarship that fully covered his undergraduate and graduate educational experience. Undertaking opportunities like the Optional Practical Training for international students enabled him to gain professional experience in the United States after he finished his studies.”

“More international students choose to study in the U.S. than in any other country,” U.S. Consul General Karen Grissette shared. “With over 4,500 accredited institutions of higher education, the United States has a college or university right for every student.”

She added, “There is a range of affordable study options and scholarships that can be sourced in Bermuda or directly through U.S. institutions.” More information about these scholarships is available at bm.usconsulate.gov.”

The spokesperson said, “#StudyWithUS provides information on pathways to pursue higher education through EducationUSA, a U.S. Department of State network of over 430 international student advising centers in more than 175 countries and territories and online at EducationUSA.gov. The network promotes U.S. higher education to students around the world, offers information about opportunities to study at accredited postsecondary institutions in the United States, and provides services to students and their families focused on topics including the admissions process, standardized testing requirements and how to finance a U.S. education. The U.S. Consulate can provide information about the student visa process and preparing for departure to the United States.

“If you are a current student or alumni of a U.S. college or university and would like to participate in the campaign, please contact Public Diplomacy Assistant Camille Haley [HaleyCS@state.gov]. For information about student visas and Bermuda’s special visa exemption, visit: bm.usconsulate.gov or contact hamiltonconsulate@state.gov.”
