Program Highlights

U.S. Based University Recruiters Visit the West Bank and Meet with Palestinian Students

During 2014, several US university and college representatives visited the city of Ramallah and met with students from local public and private high schools and with students either participating or are alumni of US government sponsored programs such as the Kennedy-Lugar Youth and Study Exchange (YES) and the English Access Microscholarship Program. Representatives presented on the US higher education system and also provided information on study and financial aid opportunities offered at their respective schools. Such activities are strongly welcomed by Palestinian students who appreciate learning first hand from school representatives and engaging directly with them. Such visits also provide an opportunity for US representatives to learn more about the Palestinian education system, curricula in place for public and private schools and the calibre of students who are interested in studying in the U.S.

Study in the U.S. College Fair

For Palestinians interested in studying in the U.S., college fairs are a great venue for U.S. higher education institutions. For the past several years, the American Consulate General, Jerusalem and the EducationUSA Advising Center at AMIDEAST/West Bank hosted ‘Study in the U.S. College Fairs’ for a select number of universities and colleges visiting the region. The fairs attract hundreds of visitors throughout the West Bank, including Jerusalem. Students, parents and educators take advantage of these rare opportunities to meet face to face with admissions representatives and receive information and ask questions about topics on the application process, financial aid for international students, testing requirements and much more. American Consulate staff are also on hand to answer questions related to scholarship and exchange opportunities administered through the American Consulate, as well as applying for a visa.

EducationUSA Workshop Series for Palestinian Ministry of Education supervisors and counselors

The EducationUSA Advising Center and U.S. Consulate General, Jerusalem, began a series of information sessions for Palestinian Ministry of Education counselors and administrators from the West Bank and East Jerusalem. This first ever workshop series organized for Ministry of Education staff representing sixteen West Bank districts helps build awareness on the U.S. higher education system, undergraduate study and the application process, U.S. government sponsored and AMIDEAST administered scholarship programs and the visa application process. The workshop also meets our objective of establishing liaison network at the Ministry of Education for future outreach activities to public schools at the district level.
