The Fulbright Program in Israel.
Yglesias, Kenneth D.; Krauskopf, Daniel
An overview of the United States-Israel Educational Foundation is presented. The aim of the foundation is to support educational exchange activities between Israel and the United States. The three primary means of achieving this interchange are: support for the broadening of individual skills in specific areas of learning; strengthening the institutions of higher learning in both countries; and reinforcement of the linkages between the academic communities of both countries. The program that serves the largest number of actual or potential students is the student counseling component. The primary program focus is exchange of scholars as articulated by the Fulbright Act of 1944 and the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961. The organization of the foundation, which is housed in the United States Embassy in Tel Aviv, and the nature of U.S. Government involvement are outlined. (SW)
