Did you know that thousands of Iranian students study in the United States each year?  In fact, for the past several years, the number of Iranian students studying in American colleges and universities has steadily grown such that Iran is now 22nd among the top 25 places of origin for international students.

And, in recent months, President Obama and Secretary Clinton have announced big steps forward in promoting exchange and opportunity with the Iranian people.  As Secretary Clinton announced in May 2011, (, new visa regulations now allow Iranian students to receive two-year, multiple entry visas.  This gives young Iranians the opportunity to return home for family events, to participate in internships, to travel outside the United States—and they won’t need to get a new visa every time.
