A delegation of the National Union for Kuwaiti Students (NUKS) -- US branch -- held a meeting with the Kuwaiti cultural advisor in Washington Dr. Abdul Aziz Al-Omar discussing issues concerning the Kuwaiti students studying in the country namely the Matser's studies conditions.
The deputy chairman of the union, Fawaz Al-Obeid, said the meeting was fruitful and the talks dealt with issues concerning the students, namely decreasing terms for Master's studies, indicating that the Cultural Office in Washington would contact officials of the Ministry of Education to press for an early decision in this regard.
Al-Obeid added that the discussions dealt with merit scholarships, stressing that it was high time that the relevant authorities in Kuwait "adopt the needed bylaws." Merit scholarships are basically granted to students with excellent records and high grades.
Elaborating, Al-Obeid said the delegation called for extending the period for health insurance for graduated students from one to two months, to be in harmony with the US immigration rules that allow a foreign graduated student to remain on the American territories for two months after finnishing studies.
