AMIDEAST Education Abroad is excited to announce our Fall 2013 Blog Abroad Correspondents. Four students have been selected to write about their semester studies and adventures in Amman, Jordan; Cairo, Egypt; and Rabat, Morocco.
After reviewing many wonderful photo submissions from current students and alumni, AMIDEAST Education Abroad has selected five semi-finalists. The following photos will be posted on Study Abroad in the Arab World, Education Abroad’s Facebook page, to be voted on. The photo that receives the largest number of “Likes” by November 9th May 2, 2013 will receive a $75 Visa gift card from AMIDEAST, a feature in the 2013-2014 program catalog, a framed version hung in AMIDEAST Headquarters, and will become Study Abroad in the Arab World’s cover photo. The second place photo will receive a $25 Visa gift card.

In an effort to give U.S. undergraduate engineering students the opportunity to study in one of the most dynamic regions of the world, AMIDEAST is proud to offer a Civil Engineering Semester at Cairo University (CU). Although many engineers follow career paths that take them to a variety of countries, there are limited opportunities for undergraduates in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines to study abroad. This unique study opportunity in the heart of the Arab world will help to prepare future American engineers to work effectively with people from that region.
At AMIDEAST Education Abroad Programs in the Arab World, we are committed to have providing financial assistance to students participating on our programs in the Middle East and North Africa. AMIDEAST currently awards two types of scholarships: 1) AMIDEAST Education Abroad Scholarships 2) Cairo University Engineering Travel Grants.
