AMIDEAST opened a small office in the Tunis medina 40 years ago. Since that time, the number of visitors to the office has grown from less than 400 per year to over 2,000 per month. Many are interested in continuing their education in the United States and seek the quality advising and testing services that have made AMIDEAST a household name across the Arab world. Providing quality advising and testing services to Tunisians interested in continuing their education in the USA has always been a major component of AMIDEAST’s mission.
AMIDEAST is a leading American non-profit organization engaged in international education, training and development activities in the Middle East and North Africa.
Founded in 1951, AMIDEAST in its early years focused on promoting U.S. study to students in the MENA region and managing U.S. scholarships and exchanges such as the flagship Fulbright Foreign Student Program. While these important programs continue apace, our work has expanded significantly.
Today AMIDEAST programs and services touch the lives of half a million individuals a year – improving educational opportunities and quality, strengthening local institutions, and developing language and professional skills critical for success in the global economy.
