    Iraq Plans to Send 10,000 Students to Colleges in U.S., Abroad

    Iraq Plans to Send 10,000 Students to Colleges in U.S., Abroad - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com



    WASHINGTON Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki says his country plans to send up to 10,000 Iraqi students a year to colleges in the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia over the next five years as a part of a new scholarship program.

    Al-Maliki says stability in Iraq has allowed the country to focus on education after years of war.

    He says there's great ambition behind the new program "because our needs are great."

    The Iraqi government is funding the scholarship program. It will allow students to earn bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees.

    The country plans to start with about 500 students in U.S. and British schools this fall.


    This is great news my only concern is who gets picked and how much the US is going to influance this process.

    In 20-odd years, we'll be hearing about how some international terrorist holds two degrees from an American university. There's something to look forward to.

    Sounds great to me.

    The more educated Iraqis, the better

    Yeah, they can get educated at American schools, become Liberals and have a brand new reason to hate America.

    This sounds like a phenomenal plan. As long as our government can work with the Iraqi government to insure the wrong people don't end up in this program it will be a great benefit to all nations involved. This is excellent diplomacy.

    And it ensures we are able to influence and help educate a massive group of Iraqis who would be familiar with the West and not view us as enemies.
    Sounds perfect. I love this idea personally
