Since 2004, AMIDEAST/Kuwait has been managing the English Access Microscholarship Program in Kuwait -- a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State to benefit Kuwaiti youth at public secondary schools from all governorates. To date, approximately 1000 students aged 13-15 have benefited from this two-year scholarship.
Students participate in 360 hours of English language instruction and additional workshops that introduce the youth to American culture, community service, policy issues, and career enhancement resources.
The English language curriculum strengthens English speaking, writing, listening, and reading skills with additional extracurricular activities. Activities may include guest speakers in the class, field trips in Kuwait for cultural activities (such as films, exhibitions and concerts), as well as visits to different Kuwaiti and American organizations.
