AMIDEAST Introduces Students to Scholarships, Exchange Programs

AMIDEAST met with Birzeit University students on February 16, 2016 to introduce them to the scholarship and exchange opportunities that it offers for postgraduates.

AMIDEAST Educational Advisor Sanaa Itayem informed students of the criteria used to select students for scholarship and exchange programs for both master’s and doctoral degrees, and how eligibility is determined. Itayem also briefed the students on the various universities they can apply to and specializations in both undergraduate and graduate studies.

“AMIDEAST programs aim to develop mutual understanding through programs that allow Palestinians to study in the US and interact with its people and cultures,” Itayem said. “For a Palestinian state to be prosperous, youth should be responsible and develop their abilities, knowledge, and intercultural skills necessary to succeed in and contribute to their own society.”
