Libyan students able to work in US

Libyan students who were recipients of scholarships while studying in the USA have been left in limbo since unrest in Libya began and their funding dried up. The US government has announced special measures to alleviate their position – chiefly, allowing them to work and reducing their course load at the same time.

“We want to ensure that students from Libya, who were here when civil unrest began, are able to continue their studies without the worry of financial burdens due to the armed conflict,” said Louis Farrell, Director for the Student and Exchange Visitor Program. “The changes announced in this notice will allow eligible students from Libya to obtain employment authorization so that they can meet their basic living expenses while continuing to pursue their education in the United States.”

These special relief measures also extend to English language students, as confirmed here: http://bit.ly/mpvCt3. There are an estimated 2,000 Libyan students currently in the USA.
