HAARETZ: Israelis pursuing the undergraduate dream in America

By Danna Harman 21.10.12

As U.S. universities hold first-ever undergraduate fair in Israel, figures show that more and more local students are interested, despite the obstacles, and that the universities do more to reach out to them.

Until a decade or two ago, only a handful of Israelis even considered flying to the U.S. for their undergraduate college years. It seemed out of reach, perhaps: something for "anglos" whose parents may have gone to college in the States before them, or for the very wealthy who could afford the tens of thousands of dollars in annual tuition fees.
