U.S. Consulate General Launches Next Video in Education Campaign Series to Support International Day of Education

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. 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.

The third video, released today on Facebook and Instagram (@USConsulateHamilton), highlights the United Nations’ International Day of Education. Risa Hunter, Executive Director at Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, sheds light on why she chose to study in the United States and highlights the many opportunities U.S. colleges and universities have to offer.


“Growing up, I was one of those people that instead of having one particular passion, or one particular area that I excelled in, I felt like I was relatively good at a number of courses within the humanities sector” says Hunter, who earned a bachelor’s degree in arts and sciences in women and gender studies from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“International students tell us they choose the United States for higher education because of strong academic opportunities, unparalleled institutional support at U.S. schools, and the value of a U.S. degree to graduates’ careers,” says U.S. Consul General Karen Grissette.


“The release of today’s “Study with US” story supports the International Day of Education proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly to celebrate the role of education for peace and development. As Risa mentions in her segment, the U.S. provides so many opportunities that are worth exploring.”


More international students choose to study in the U.S. than in any other country. U.S. Consul General 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 are available at bm.usconsulate.gov
