USAID Higher Education Scholarship

How and When to Apply?

The USAID Higher Education Scholarship now open through February 15.


USAID Lebanon’s Higher Education Scholarship Program (HES) provides full undergraduate scholarships to meritorious but economically challenged students from Lebanon’s 26 districts to study at the American University of Beirut (AUB) and the Lebanese American University (LAU). The scholarship covers tuition fees, housing or transportation expenses, medical insurance, textbooks, laptop, and a monthly stipend to students. As part of this scholarship, students not only acquire a quality education, leadership and critical thinking skills, but also engage in community service and volunteering initiatives. Since 2010, more than 1,500 students have so far benefited from the program.

More information about the program can be found on AUB’s and LAU’s pages.
