University of Wyoming to offer up to five Tunisian students in-state tuition

The University of Wyoming (UW) announced that beginning in Fall 2012, the institution will offer up to five Tunisian undergraduate students in-state tuition for their bachelor’s degree (not to exceed five years).

This program is made possible thanks to the cooperation between the state of Wyoming and the Republic of Tunisia via the United States National Guard State Partnership Program, which included both Tunisia and Wyoming since 2004.

The UW Tunisian students program came as a direct result of US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s visit to Tunisia in April 2011. During the visit, then Prime Minister Beji Caid Essebsi requested a program allowing Tunisian students to study at American universities at reduced costs.

Participants of the program may also compete for other privately funded scholarship opportunities in the United States.

The application process will be managed by AMIDEAST Tunis, which will soon hold an orientation session regarding the program and the university.

    This is really good news! Tunisia and the U.S. have always been friendly, even when there is disagreement on foreign policy matters. Universities in the U.S. are neither owned nor are being operatred by the U.S. federal goverment. I hope everyone appreciates the Secretary of State’s efforts in making this possible. I certainly hope that the areas of study will cover SMTE (science, math, techonology and Engineering).
