Transactional, Transitional, Transformational: Changing the Paradigm on American and Iraqi Cooperation

Tuesday June 25, 2013
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Washington, DC

Organized by:

The Iraqi Cultural Office, the Kurdistan Regional Government-Iraq (KRG) Representation to the United States Office, and the U.S. Department of State.

Do you have Iraqi students on your campus now? Would you like to recruit Iraqi scholarship students for graduate programs? Can you offer Conditional Admission to Iraqi scholarship students for master's and doctorate degree programs? Do you also have an IEP to provide English language instruction?

Join us for a one-day conference featuring the three Iraqi scholarship programs that send thousands of students abroad for master's and doctorate degrees each year. Iraqi scholarship programs are: Government of Iraq's Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR), Higher Committee for Education Development (HCED), and KRG's Human Capacity Development Program (HCDP). Scholarships for undergraduate studies are not provided by the programs at this time.

Be part of the discussion on ways to transition from a transactional relationship based on scholarships to a transformational relationship that more fully integrates good teaching, scientific research, and academic engagement to build institutional relationships and strengthen connections between our two countries.

The agenda will include:

Updates from the three scholarship programs;
Techniques on how to recruit and integrate Iraqi scholarship students and their families to your campus;
Faculty and PostDoc research exchanges; and
Best Practices and Lessons Learned.

Registration deadline is June 17, 2013. Registration is FREE, but space is limited. You will receive confirmation of your registration.

Question Title

* 12. Most Iraqi scholarship students request "Conditional Admission" because they do not have adequate English language skills to step directly into a graduate program. Conditional Admission means that the university offers admission to the Intensive English Language Program and to the graduate program on the condition that the student satisfactorily completes the ESL program. Can your institution offer Conditional Admission to Iraqi scholarship students in some fields of study for master's and/or doctorage degrees?
