Study in the U.S.
The U.S. Embassy Beirut sponsors a variety of scholarships and advising services for students - of all ages - wishing to study in the United States. While the Fulbright Scholar programs and the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship program are perhaps the best known programs sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, there are a variety of programs that address specific learning objects across a number of fields.
The U.S. Department of State supports a network of more than 450 EducationUSA advising centers that respond to over 25 million requests annually. EducationUSA is the only official source of information on studying in the U.S. authorized by the U.S. Government.

In Lebanon, the EducationUSA advising center is hosted by AMIDEAST and offers a full range of free services to help students and professionals access higher education at 4,200 U.S. colleges and universities. The center includes an up-to-date library with references, Internet resources, and a professionally trained adviser who works with groups as well as individual students.
Public workshops explore the U.S. higher education system, how to select a university, and how to finance study in the United States. EducationUSA Lebanon at AMIDEAST facilitates visits from U.S. university recruiters and U.S. college fair groups. Other unique programs to assist students include:
The EducationUSA Competitive College Club (CCC) is a program that high schools students can join for free to prepare themselves for competitive U.S. based universities. Students work on community service projects, prepare for SATs and learn how to identify universities that fit: academically, socially and financially. An additional EducationUSA program available in Lebanon is the Opportunity program that supports talented students who might be eligible for full funding in the U.S., but who do not have the means to pay for tests and applications. Both programs require an application and an interview with the EducationUSA adviser.
