Opening Doors to Higher Education

Through small specialized scholarships and two scholarship search funds, AMIDEAST is working to open new doors for bright, non-elite youth to opportunities for higher education in the United States or at American-style universities in the region.

Diana Kamal Scholarship Search Fund (DKSSF)
The Diana Kamal Scholarship Search Fund (DKSSF) is an AMIDEAST initiative dedicated to expanding access to U.S. undergraduate study for outstanding Arab students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Hope Fund Undergraduate Scholarship
The Hope Fund Undergraduate Scholarship is designed to provide talented Palestinian youth who possess leadership potential with an opportunity to pursue an undergraduate degree in the United States.
The American Palestinian Local University Scholarships
(A-PLUS) Program will provide bright, academically promising, but socioeconomically disadvantaged Palestinian high school seniors throughout the West Bank and Gaza with full academic undergraduate scholarships for bachelor’s degree programs at local Palestinian universities.
The Abraham Lincoln Incentive Grants Program
The Abraham Lincoln Incentive Grants Program invests in bright, needy Palestinian students with the potential to compete successfully for scholarships to pursue undergraduate studies in the United States.
