Sending Palestinian Student Delegation to USA

JERICHO, August 3, 2010 (WAFA)- The U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem and AMIDEAST met with a group of 55 students in Jericho to prepare them for travel to the United States. 

The students included Palestinians from the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and over 20 from the Gaza Strip.  The students will be participating in programs funded by the U.S. Department of State, including the Fulbright program, which fully funds study for M.A. or PhD degrees at American universities, and the YES program, which supports one year of study at American high schools.

The U.S. Consul for Press and Public Affairs, Frank Finver, welcomed the students, telling them that, “These programs will help you to develop your abilities and to realize your dreams and ambitions in order to help build the future state of Palestine.”  Mr. Finver mentioned that the U.S. Consulate General sends more than 250 students every year to the United States on programs supported by the U.S. Department of State.  Three hundred and sixty two Palestinians studied in the United States during the 2009 academic year, a number which the U.S. Government hopes to increase significantly in the coming years in line with President Obama’s desire for increased cultural and educational exchange between the United States and the Middle East.

AMIDEAST Country Director Steve Keller also spoke to the group, noting that AMIDEAST offices can provide information on other U.S. study opportunities and administer a number of programs for Palestinians, including the U.S. Department of State-supported Access Microscholarships program (Access), which provides teenagers with free English language instruction.
