On August 19, Youth for Sience Foundation organized in collaration with AMIDEAST and YES program, a farewell and orientation ceremony for the 12 high school graduated students who have been admitted and granted scholarships to prestigious US universities like Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, Rochester, Brown…and leaving the country in few days.
This orientation ceremony is the first of its kind to be held for students leaving Tunisia to study abroad, and specifically the US. Documents on Tunisia’s economy, business environment, industrial fabric, investment incentives , competitive advantages etc… have been handed to the students.
Representatives of both Amideast, YES, and the YFS Foundation have been keen in giving the laureats several advice on how to benefit from such rich, vibrant and highly creative and skilled environment and how to keep connected with Tunisia for the sake of better optimization of their study, their network and stay in the US.
The Foundation and AMIDEAST decided to make this meeting with elite students an annual gathering with Tunisia’s diaspora.
