An Introduction to Access
Access scholarships support the educational and personal development of young Jordanians who would not normally have access to such opportunities. 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 Jordanian and American cultural events. The recipients of Access scholarships are 13 – 16 year old Jordanians who come from underprivileged backgrounds, are attending MOE schools, and have shown academic promise.
Fluency in English opens up both educational and occupational doors. With the new mandate from the Ministry of Higher Education, students must have a high-level of English fluency as a prerequisite to pursuing a graduate degree. In addition, many industries require English fluency for hiring. By targeting students from under-served areas, Access provides students with the skills in English needed to succeed in the knowledge economy.
