SERVICES

How can we help?

The Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE) was founded in 1963 as a binational commission for Malaysia and the United States to promote educational exchange between the two countries.

Fulbright Program

Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing as no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international relations. Man’s capacity for decent behavior seems to vary directly with his perception of others as individual humans with human motives and feelings, whereas his capacity for barbarism seems related to his perception of an adversary in abstract terms, as the embodiment, that is, of some evil design or ideology.

EducationUSA

EducationUSA Advising Centers in Malaysia have been hosted by the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE) since the 1970s. EducationUSA Centers are supported by the U.S. Department of State. Malaysia has centers in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

EducationUSA is a network of hundreds of advising centers in 170 countries where students and parents find accurate, comprehensive, and current information about how to apply to accredited U.S. colleges and universities.  Advisers are well trained and highly experienced. They guide students from the familiarization and searching stage all the way to their departure for the USA. Advisers maintain ties with United States university representatives and staff, current international students, and returning alumni. Advising services help students understand the U.S. higher education system and prepare strong university applications.

We believe students will be better prepared to succeed if they are actively involved in researching, selecting, and applying to the schools of their choice. Advisers are pleased to guide students each step of the way.

Studying in the United States provides international students an outstanding education and also the self-confidence, friendships, professional contacts, cultural experiences, and English proficiency to benefit their careers and daily lives.

FAAM

Fulbright Alumni Association of Malaysia was formed in 1998. The nascent Alumni was first mooted on April 12th 1996 and formally registered in mid-1997. It seeks to galvanise the vast and varied interests of the Malaysian and U.S. Fulbright community in furtherance of the famed Fulbright vision…

The essence of the intercultural education is the acquisition of empathy, the ability to see the world as the others see it, and to allow for the possibility that others may see it more accurately…”
J. William Fulbright

The main purpose of the Association is to function as a forum to exchange the opinion and to strengthen social and professional relationship among the members of the Association towards the development of J. William Fulbright professionalism and individualism of all members.

Apart from that, the Association also hopes to:

  1. Plan, arrange and carry out projects, activities or programs on community development and to enable members of the Association to contribute knowledge, expertise and experiences in particular fields related to the community at large.
  2. Plan and arrange relationships between the Association and agencies, institutions and other individuals in order to ease the members of the Association to contribute knowledge, expertise, and experiences of their particular field, for the development of the community.
  3. To create and strengthen relationships between the Association and agencies of the Fulbright Program organizer in the United States and other Alumni Associations around the world for the development of professionalism and sociality of the Association members.
  4. To set up and manage trust fund from time to time to sponsor and deal with certain projects as contribution to the development of community.

MACEE is a binational commission overseen by a board of directors
