Diana Kamal Scholarship Search Fund (DKSSF)

AMIDEAST/Lebanon is pleased to offer the unique opportunity for highly-qualified students to receive assistance in identifying a scholarship for a bachelor’s degree at an institution in North America or in-region!

About the DKSSF

AMIDEAST’s own 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.
