Collaborating with local, regional, and international partners, Amideast/Tunisia provides programs and services that grant access to high-quality educational opportunities, expand access to U.S. study, empower youth and women, strengthen local institutions, and develop language and professional skills, all while building cross-cultural understanding.
Its testing services for both academic and professional contexts and its online and in-person instruction for adults, teens, and children at all levels, from beginning to advanced have enabled thousands of Tunisians to develop their English skills and achieve their goals by offering online and in-person instruction. By adding new centers in Sousse and Les Berges Du Lac, it has expanded its services across Tunisia.

“I’m proud to see Amideast Tunisia continue its mission with vigor and dedication. We will continue working towards inclusion, equity, and diversity in all our programs,” said Annie Stetler, Amideast’s country director for both Tunisia and Libya.
Out of its longstanding commitment to international educational exchange, Amideast/Tunisia has been proud to partner with the U.S. Department of State and other organizations to administer impactful scholarship and exchange programs such as the Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program, Fulbright Program, MENA Scholarship Support Fund (MSSF), Professional Fellows Programs (PFP), and English Access Microscholarship (Access) Program. Through these programs, as well as through Amideast’s EducationUSA advising services, thousands of Tunisians have qualified for admission to colleges and universities in the United States, often with scholarships and financial aid.

Additionally, the American Corners in Tunis and Sousse offer spaces and resources for the Tunisian public to continually learn about the United States and its culture and values as well as develop critical 21st-century skills such as entrepreneurship, leadership, media literacy, and use of new technologies that will contribute to Tunisia’s continued development.
“As we celebrate this milestone, we renew our unwavering commitment to creating opportunity, hope, and understanding. We extend our gratitude to everyone who makes these programs possible,” Stetler added. “It is through their support that we can help create a brighter future. We are proud of all the accomplishments over the past five decades and look forward to another 50 years of even greater achievements.”
