Fulbright Foreign Student Program
The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State is the U.S. government's flagship international educational program and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The scholarship is a merit-based grant that provides 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 hundreds of Fulbrighters each year as students experience U.S. Higher Education, local culture, engage with Americans while successfully completing their grants in the United States.
