The U.S.-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission (US-SLFC) has, in the last six decades or so, devoted its activities to the promotion of mutual understanding between the U.S and Sri Lanka through mutual academic and professional exchanges. The Student Advising Services Programme is an integral part of the US-SLFC. It offers various services to students seeking educational opportunities in the USA.
This advising center strives to provide accurate, comprehensive, current, and unbiased information on educational opportunities in the United States.
