As part of Virginia International University’s ongoing Embassy Outreach Program, Dr. Ron Kovach, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Ms. Tanith Fowler Corsi, Academic Affairs, recently met with Ms. Jūratė Usevičiūtė, First Secretary, at the Embassy of Lithuania in Washington, DC.

The VIU Academic Affairs team and First Secretary discussed possible areas of academic collaboration such as full degree and dual-degree programs involving universities in Lithuania. VIU is a global university with over 100 countries represented and its Regional Scholarship program is designed to attract students from European countries to complement the existing diverse student body.

Through this regional scholarship program, students from strategic world regions can apply for a full or partial scholarship to study at VIU at either the undergraduate or level level. Collaboration involving cyber-security studies through VIU’s School of Computer & Information Systems was an area of discussion as cyber-security is a growing industry in Lithuania as well as in the United States.
