Ambassador Al-Jubeir meets with Saudi students in Washington

Saudi Ambassador to the US Adel Al-Jubeir chaired a meeting of the board of directors of Saudi student clubs in the US and launched the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission's new website in Washington today.

In remarks on the occasion, Ambassador Al-Jubeir highlighted the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz's interest in Saudi students abroad, particularly in the United States, and fielded questions from the students.

In September 2006, King Abdullah established a government scholarship program that provides 15,000 scholarships at all levels in the United States. They are for scientific specializations required by the labor market, especially medicine, engineering, computer science, mathematics and physics.
