THE STORY:

Julie Whittaker wrote -

The Amal Scholarship Fund seeks to bring amal, the Arabic word for hope, to refugee communities in Jordan by providing scholarships for Syrian refugee youth to attend Jordanian universities.

A scholarship of only $16,000 covers a four-year bachelor’s degree at a Jordanian university, including tuition, books and a living stipend. That's less than $4,000 per year.

By leveraging partnerships with US-based academic institutions, the Fund will increase access to higher education, develop leadership and promote community engagement and mutual cultural understanding among refugee youth and American students.

Will you join us in supporting the next generation of leaders?

------------------

The Problem: With a local population of 6.5 million, Jordan is currently home to over 650,000 Syrian refugees, whose lives have been interrupted by war, violence, and destruction in their home countries.

Across Jordan, 29.3% of the Syrian refugee population is ages 18-35. Before war and devastation twisted their paths, these youth were defining themselves and their futures – aspiring high school graduates, university students studying for final exams, and young professionals eager to use their talents.

 

The Demand: Many youth have now been in Jordan for four years – enough time to complete a full undergraduate degree – without any educational opportunities. Without education, youth struggle to integrate into their host community and are at higher risk of turning to violence or extremist ideologies, or risking their lives returning to Syria or journeying to Europe. The lack of higher education creates individual desperation with ripple social effects, energy and skills unutilized in the present and lost for the future. Who will be the doctors, teachers, engineers, and politicians rebuilding Syria and other home countries if the youth are unable to pursue higher education?

 

The Response: The Amal Scholarship Fund promotes youth engagement in community service by targeting its scholarships to youth committed to making a difference in their community and rebuilding their home country.  The Fund targets youth leaders to support and grow refugee youth community engagement and equip them with skills needed for the future.

A scholarship of only $16,000 covers a four-year bachelor’s degree at a Jordanian university, including tuition, books and a living stipend. That's less than $4,000 per year.

For refugee youth leaders, this education is key to supporting their community in the present and rebuilding a safe and peaceful home in the future.
