Beginning in August 2013, Yemeni students will be able to take part in the prestigious Fulbright program, in which youth scholarships are provided by the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Embassy and AMIDEAST.
A symposium was recently held at the AMIDEAST institute to foster a full understanding of the program’s requirements, objectives and conditions. The symposium was attended by deputy minister of higher education Dr. Mohamed Mutaher, cultural affairs officer Adam Sigelman, and Dr. Khalid Al-Akwa’a.
Last year year, the U.S. Embassy granted over 350 scholarships to young talented Yemeni students aged 14-18.
Fulbright grants provide funding for two years of master’s degree study in the U.S in all fields except computer science, engineering, dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy. Priority consideration will be given to applicants in the fields of public policy, public administration, urban planning, communications, management and international relations.
