EDUCATION ADVISING LETTER TO KASP STUDENTS
Dear King Abdullah Scholarship Program (KASP) Student,
Congratulations on receiving a King Abdullah Scholarship! We are happy so many of you are going to study in the United States, and we at EducationUSA want to help make your transition as easy as possible. We wish to invite you and your family to attend one of our Pre-departure Orientations being offered at the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh and the Consulates General in Jeddah and Dhahran.
