U.S. Embassy Uruguay

Our center is located at the U.S. Embassy in Montevideo, but we work very closely together with the other advising center in Uruguay located at the binational center Alianza Cultural Uruguay Estados Unidos. We are responsible for all EducationUSA programs and outreach activities in the country. We organize monthly general information sessions, visit local high schools and universities, participate in educational fairs, coordinate presentations by U.S. universities, and act as liaison between U.S. and local higher education institutions.
