Since 2007, the DKSSF has matched more than 150 deserving young men and women from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, and Yemen with scholarships covering their undergraduate degree programs in the United States. With the generous support of donors, this unique Amideast program expands access to educational opportunity for academically qualified youth who possess leadership potential and yearn to make a difference in their societies but lack the means to afford a quality higher education.
For 20 years, the Hope Fund has opened doors to U.S. higher education for young Palestinian men and women, many from refugee backgrounds, by matching academically qualified youth with scholarships from universities and colleges across the United States. Donor support ensures that Amideast is able to connect aspiring Palestinian undergraduates to scholarships and cover substantial other costs such as standardized test fees, student visas, and international travel.
Financial obstacles are the greatest barrier to studying abroad for American students, especially those in community colleges, who represent as many as 40 percent of all college students in the United States but represent only 2 percent of those studying abroad, let alone in the Middle East and North Africa. Help us improve equity, diversity, and inclusion in study abroad by supporting Project Minah, an Amideast scholarship initiative that will enable more students enrolled in community colleges and other two-year degree programs to participate in our Education Abroad programs.
Needs change with time, requiring new solutions and fresh thinking. What has worked in the past may no longer work. Yet, the lessons we have learned and the capabilities we have developed during more than 70 years in the MENA region are relevant. With the support of donors like you, we can develop programs and services that meet the changing needs of the individuals and communities we have served for so long.
