The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, is the flagship international educational exchange program designed to foster mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange. 

The Fulbright Foreign Student Program is administered by bi-national Fulbright Commissions and U.S. Embassies. All Foreign Student Program applications are processed by these offices. AMIDEAST is one of the cooperating agencies contracted by the U.S. Department of State to administer the Fulbright program. AMIDEAST administers the Fulbright Foreign Student Program for the Middle East and North Africa on behalf of ECA.

The scholarship is a merit-based grant that provides up to two-years of funding for graduate-level study at a U.S. university.  For over four decades AMIDEAST has been placing students from across the MENA region into universities throughout the United States. It has been integral to the success of the Fulbright Program, serving as a convener of academic and cultural exchange and dialogue. AMIDEAST continues today to support countless Fulbrighters to experience the opportunity of exchange and successfully complete their grants in the United States. Learn more about the Fulbright Program and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.


Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Junior Faculty Development Programs (JFDP) for Egypt and Lebanon and the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program for Iraq bring junior faculty in various discipline-based cohorts to the United States for intensive 10-week programs for faculty development, mentoring, and cultural exchange activities. The intent of these programs is to equip junior faculty with the tools needed to build higher education capacity within their home institutions and advance education for future generations. The programs also provide the foundation for junior faculty and their U.S. hosts to develop sustainable institutional relationships and identify areas of cooperation to foster long-term collaboration and institutional linkages.
