At the invitation of the American Embassy, the American Consortium of Universities (ACU) took part in the Amideast fair in Kuwait city. ACU was among a select group of ten institutions whose attendance at the fair was approved by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Higher Education. Dr. Nebila Dhieb-Henia, Director of Saudi INTERLINK Language Centers and ACU Regional Director, represented ACU.
In 2013, 3000 out of a total of 5000 scholarships were granted for study at US universities, and the number of Kuwaiti students on scholarship who choose the US for their higher education is predicted to increase in coming years. In order to ensure ACU’s ongoing visibility and broaden knowledge about its offerings, Dr. Dhieb-Henia met and discussed ACU with students, the EducationUSA director and advisor, the Amideast outreach head, and other American and Kuwaiti officials.
