AMIDEAST Arab Heritage Fund Scholarships
« on: Mar 20, 2010, 12:01 PM »
AMIDEAST Education Abroad Programs in the Arab World is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for participants in our summer, semester, and academic-year programs.  Beginning in summer 2010, we will offer a limited number of need-based scholarships to selected students.  Awards, which will be made in the form of a program fee reduction, will average between $500 and $1000 for summer programs, and between $500 and $2,000 for semester and academic-year programs.  In exceptional circumstances, awards of up to $2000 may be made for summer programs, and up to $5000 for semester and academic-year programs.

Who is eligible?

Funding is available only to participants in AMIDEAST Education Abroad Programs in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, and Morocco, and awards will be made only to students who submit a complete scholarship application and a complete program application by the established deadlines (see below).  Scholarship applications from all qualified students will be considered.  However, preference will be given to applicants who are:

    * Currently enrolled at a college or university that is either a member of the AMIDEAST Academic Consortium or an AMIDEAST Affiliate (Rutgers University, University of San Francisco, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee).
    * First-generation college students and/or members of groups that historically have been underrepresented on study abroad programs.
