AMIDEAST is a leading American non-profit organization engaged in international education, training and development activities in the Middle East and North Africa.
Founded in 1951, AMIDEAST in its early years focused on promoting U.S. study to students in the MENA region and managing U.S. scholarships and exchanges. While these important programs continue apace, our work has expanded significantly.
AMIDEAST programs and services touch the lives of half a million individuals a year – improving educational opportunities and quality, strengthening local institutions, and developing language and professional skills critical for success in the global economy.
An Introduction to Access
Access scholarships support the personal development of young Palestinians. Access aims to empower these students by: increasing their English language skills through afterschool classes, strengthening their commitment to community service through sponsored activities, and fostering a global perspective through American cultural events.
What does Access?
Access is both a teacher training activity and a scholarship for students. AMIDEAST, with funds from the US Embassy and the support of the Ministry of Education, provides students with scholarships to attend English language classes after school, over the weekend, and during the summer break. These scholarships are awarded for a period of two years during which students receive approximately 400 hours of English language teaching as well as cultural enhancement activities. Other activities include regular student volunteerism in the community, Thanksgiving/Eid celebrations.
