    Frederic Eger asks Michelle Obama about the Creation of an International version to the US Presidential Scholars Program


    Greetings from Jerusalem, Israel.


    I am Film & TV Director and Producer Frederic Eger, Israeli Citizen.


    This is about US Department of Education Presidential Scholar Program that honours outstanding High School students for their achievements in the Arts and the Cinematic Arts.


    Problem: regulations to this program says applications to the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program are by invitation only, after nomination, students cannot apply individually and must be U.S. citizens or Permanent Resident.


    So:
    What do you think of creating an International version to this US Presidential Scholars Program for students from the age of 13 up to 35 years old in the field of Performing Arts, Cinematic Arts, and Arts in general; and,
    to twin this program with a partnering countries like Israel, Canada or France for example who would agree to organize a similar Presidential Progam for the Arts in their respective countries?


    Please let me know what your thoughts are.


    Big Hugs from Jerusalem, Israel


    Have a good day.


    Frederic Eger
