Twenty journalism students from Bangladesh, Nepal, India, and Sri Lanka arrived in Seattle on June 22. The students are here for five weeks and will be staying at the University of Washington for most of the period. They will be studying topics related to journalism and the media, along with working on community service projects, leadership workshops, and cultural excursions. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is coordinated in Seattle by the Foundation for International Understanding through Students (FIUTS).
