#BDS: 8 US universities launch study programs in Israel

Top American universities to offer students one semester study-abroad programs. Project conceived by MASA in an effort to draw more foreign students to Israeli academic institutions

Israel is trying to draw more American students: eight leading universities in the United States will launch study-abroad programs in Israel this year.

The programs will send American students from participating universities to one- semester in the Jewish state, and grant them credit points that will be recognized by American universities.

Harvard University, Columbia University, New Jersey City University, University of Florida and University of Michigan will collaborate with Jerusalem's Hebrew University.

The University of Maryland will join efforts with Haifa University; Washington University will cooperate with The Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya (IDC), and Miami University will launch a program in Carmiel.
