Program Summary
The Diana Kamal Scholarship Search Fund (DKSSF) makes the dream of study in the United States possible for highly qualified Arab students from underserved populations in the Middle East and North Africa. Through this initiative, AMIDEAST is able to identify students of exceptional accomplishment and promise who wish to pursue undergraduate study at an American college or university, but cannot afford to do so. The resources in this special fund then enable AMIDEAST to provide the services that assist several candidates each year to apply and qualify for four-year scholarships to select U.S. institutions of higher learning.

Who is Eligible?
Outstanding, underprivileged Jordanian students currently in 11th grade


  • Administer an extensive search throughout Jordan to identify applicants of exceptional accomplishment and promise
  • Provide a full range of services, including academic advising English-language enrichment, testing services, and travel expenses, for up to two years to assist scholars through the lengthy, and often complicated, testing and application process
  • Once scholarship recipients are selected AMIDEAST, works directly with U.S. institutions of higher education, students, and families to match scholars to select American colleges or universities willing to provide scholarship resources to fund candidates’ completion of four-year undergraduate degree programs in the United States
