Trip to the United States
During the month of January 2011, Scholars will embark upon a 9-10 day trip to the United States, specifically the cities of New York and Washington D.C. The trip will include sessions of each of the academic courses, the English enrichment, public speaking, and leadership classes, and other sessions and activities as arranged. Opportunities being planned will include meetings with NYU students and university leaders, visits to historical sites, museums, and other places of interest and significance, and engagement with various leaders in various fields. Scholars and their families will be provided with a detailed itinerary which lists destinations, venues, and activities during the fall 2010.
Scholars will travel round-trip to the U.S. via coach class and will be accompanied from the UAE to the U.S. by chaperones from the three participating universities. While in the U.S., they will be accompanied on all activities by the school chaperones and the Executive Director and Deputy Director of the Program.
