Travel to Saudi Arabia

We are happy to announce the next Student Study Visit for Model Arab League students – the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia! As many of you know, these study visits are expense-paid, 10-day, cultural immersion travel experiences for students who have participated in the MAL program. The National Council is thrilled to be able to offer this program to students who excel in the MAL. The dates for this visit are December 27, 2012 – January 7, 2013, though these are subject to change slightly. A nominal program fee may be assessed to reduce attrition.

We are asking for your personal and professional recommendations for student participants. If any of your students fit the following criteria, please send us their name, email, phone number, and brief paragraph outlining the reasons for your recommendation. Each school may recommend two students. Participants must:
1.      Be Model Arab League alumni;
2.      Not graduate before December 2013, preferably of Junior status;
3.      Not have travelled to the Gulf region previously;
4.      Be in good academic standing;
5.      Be good representatives of their institution, the National Council, and the United States.
